your understanding of maildir is correct on the functional level.

okay, so you need to do one of the following:

recompile procmail to make it use maildir by default
ensure that all users have a .procmailrc file in their homedir, which
simply contains:

DEFAULT=$HOME/Maildir/

postfix has no say in this issue because it always delivers to amavis,
which always delivers to procmail.
