Well.. Amavisd put it there, so I sure hope so.
That said, I checked the email headers in the file and to me it looks 
like a valid email. I see the following fields that I guess are important:

Return-Path: <>
X-Envelope-From: <sndr at remotedomain.tld>
X-Envelope-To: <rcpt at ourdomain.tld>
X-Envelope-To-Blocked: <rcpt at ourdomain.tld>
X-Quarantine-ID: <ziXFTUeDuvT7>
Received: (a numebr of them)
Message-ID: <some_gmail_id>
From: <sndr at remotedomain.tld>
To: <rcpt at ourdomain.tld>

There are others but I don't think they matter much for 
releasing/sending the email. This all is followed by the actual mail 
content, mime, etc.

I did. But I tried again, just to be sure:

# amavisd-release virus/virus-20180827T110127-45477-09 ziXFTUeDuvT7 
user at ddomain.tld
450 4.5.0 Failure: Secret_id ziXFTUeDuvT7 does not match mail_id 
virus-20180827T110127-45477-09 at (eval 128) line 308, <GEN55> line 7.

Yeah, it would. But (un)fortunately it doesn't work.
