Issue may be use of continuation but I'm not sure about that.

Ouch.

I believe a lot of people who use Debian exim for more-complicated-than-
average-use-cases opt to avoid the Debian/debconf-generated exim
configuration machinery, at least once it has generated something to
begin working from.

To achieve this, one copies /var/lib/exim4/config.autogenerated to
/etc/exim4/exim4.conf and restarts the daemon.

From that point forward, you will not get the benefit of any
improvements made to the debconf-exim-config-generation machinery in
newer package versions, but it is quite static anyway. You would also
side-step bugs like the above.
