I've been getting mail with the same rule hitting, so I've decided to
do:

score RP_MATCHES_RCVD 0

the rule only means that spam is sent from mailservers of the domain in
the return-path, which means, if you get spam from gmail with
@gmail.com address, it will fire.

I dont understand how could rule like this get into consideration for
direct scoring. meta rules - yes, direct - no.
