Thanks to everyone who responded. I am now going the suggested way.

However, it occurs to me that this is something postfix could be
trivially doing itself, e.g.

  smtpd_helo_restrictions =
    […]
    reject_my_hostname
    reject_my_ipaddress

since it has those data available. Is this something worth pursuing?

Thanks,
