Is it possible that the header information might be inviting the "on Vacation" message?

I spoke with one systems administrator who said that my messages were being received with  PRECEDENCE=NORMAL, and the sysadmin uses that to gauge who gets an auto-responder.

If messages arrive with PRECEDENCE=LIST or PRECEDENCE=BULK then their system is set to NOT auto-respond.  I have since configured my list as PRECEDENCE=LIST and that made that particular systems administer
happy.

OTOH, my software seems to filter those automated messages, so it's not really been an issue for me.
