You could test something like this¹:

  begin routers:
    ...


    smartest:
        driver = manualroute
        route_data = ${lookup{$sender_address_domain}lsearch*{/etc/exim/routes.by-sender}}
        ...



# cat /etc/exim/routes.by-sender
example1.org: relay.for-example1.org
example2.org: relay.for-example2.org
*:            smart.relay.org



¹) not tested, you should think about the "domains = ..." preconditon, the
position of the router in the list of routers, about the wildcard I
used, about "no_more", and more
