Thank you for reporting this.  However, I cannot reproduce it here.

Those directories are normally created by the invocation of
"/usr/sbin/postfix check" from the %post script.  This means that if
you've installed Postfix cleanly and didn't mess with the install, it
will also uninstall cleanly.  It does here.
