Well, it's kind of backwards from that.

Exim retry rules only _prevent_ a queue runner from processing a
message. They dont trigger a delivery. That is, a message only
gets a delivery attempt if none of the retry rules match the retry-rule
domain, error type, time restriction, etc.

So to find out which rule triggered a delivery really isn't the right
question, since a delivery means none of them matched.
