I've seen a lot of announcement/verification emails (such as Amazon orders) which go out from an address that does not exist - presumably such emails would be blocked by sender verification? You could argue perhaps that the people sending out these emails shouldn't be doing this, or that developers shouldn't be using @debian.org addresses for that purpose, but it's not quite as clear cut as not being able to reply means that you don't want to receive an email.
