This problem turned out to be a DNS issue.  The Postfix 3.1.0 machine's
virtual domain in the From: address was entered in DNS with a CNAME record
pointing to the gateway machine (because they are, indeed, the same
address).  When it was changed to an A record, the problem went away.
Evidently, the user that was certain that the problem only started after the
upgrade was, uhm, mistaken.  The problem also didn't occur on a separate
Postfix 2.11 machine because it's DNS entry was correct.  

BTW, the mail provider found that the default sendmail config and their own
customized config both rewrote the From: header when the From: address was
for a domain that had a CNAME record.  They said this is a config option in
sendmail and they prefer to operate this way.  Interesting that my other
Postfix machines don't do this, nor do many other large email providers.
