to avoid that issue on my MX I use dovecot as LDA and redirect via sieve with original

sieve_redirect_envelope_from = orig_recipient

redirect in sieve is done based on envelope-to header.

lda_original_recipient_header = Envelope-to

to avoid redirection of bounces, add before-filter to directly save in

;=== /etc/dovecot/sieve/before/20-Mailer-Daemon.sieve ==
require ["fileinto"];

# rule:[Mailer-Daemon]
if allof (address "From" "Mailer-Daemon@<your mx hostname>")
        fileinto "INBOX";

this is also more or less what Sven describes in!msg/

btw, due to your homebase is Germany, think of DSGVO and AVV, I'm not
sure if such forwarding is allowed.
