No - not necessarily.
If you want to match on $header_from:, you will need to so specify.
Keep in mind that not all information is available 'early'.

File format will be 'perceived' differently by different lookup types.
I use MANY lookup types against ONE file, with a format of this sort:
wbh [at] conducive # to block a specific address
*conducive.org # to block an entire domain.tld
*tv # to block an entire .tld
The first has no wildcards, obviously.
For the others, note the PRESENCE of a '*' wildcard and the ABSENCE of a
',' dot, and makes sure that does what you actually want for YOUR use,
as we are not doing quite the same thing with this file.

If you want to search WITHIN a string, a different method may be more
# DATA_SCAN_01A1: IF message is from known spam-engine THEN deny
regex = ^Received:: .*PowerMTA
Note here that there is specialized notation that tells the regex what
to look AT (the ^Received::) and where to initiate and cease looking for
a match - in this case - after ANY leading characters.
If you are looking for prefixes, something else is wanted.

Problem is primarily the expectation that $sender_address == $header_to
Add, whre you are testing:
logwrite = $sender_address $header-to
...and you'll see what Exim sees at that point in time.
