Are you sure these nondelivery notifications originate from your
amavisd installation?  According to the settings of $final_*_destiny
you are showing, none of these are D_BOUNCE, so it can't be this
instance of amavisd that is generating notifications you are seeing.
Carefully examine a notification to see what really generated it.

When amavisd generates a nondelivery notification (a bounce), it
does indeed only contain an attached original mail header section
(a complete header section, not just From/To/Subject, but no body).
This is intentional: attaching an infected body or spam would not
be helpful and could contribute to a valid bounce being discarded
on a receiving side. Such practice of attaching only a header
section is common with mailers too.
