Ah.  The problem is that the UNION's output column is bigint, and the
type discrepancy (bigint above, domain below) discourages the planner
from pushing down the WHERE condition.

There's a related complaint here:

If we were to change things so that the result of the UNION were still
the domain, not plain bigint, then your example would be optimized the
way you want.  I'm unsure about what other side-effects that would have
though.
