ISPs usually do not strip out the envelope to address from the
Received: header on purpose. MTAs simply do not /add/ the
envelope-to address to the Received: header if there's more than
one envelope-to address for that particular delivery.

Many ISPs do add an Envelope-To: or X-Envelope-To: to multidrop
boxes like this, which is the header to filter on.
