Thank you for reporting this. However, I cannot reproduce it here.
Those directories are normally created by the invocation of
"/usr/sbin/postfix check" from the %post script. This means that if
you've installed Postfix cleanly and didn't mess with the install, it
will also uninstall cleanly. It does here.
