This post claims the problem is with amavisd-new, and not p5-DBD-mysql:
Quoting: "The change is that [as of 4.038] p5-DBD-mysql now returns
mysql doubles as perl doubles and mysql floats as perl floats (and not
as a string anymore). This should be adressed [sic] by amavisd."
In a followup, the maintainer for the Debian port of amavisd-new asks
for more info to look into a patch, but that was in January 2017 and the
port is still broken.
I'm frankly not qualified to answer: Is this an amavisd problem, or a
p5-DBD-mysql problem? As it is, amavisd-new is getting bad data.
