You are right, it is sendmail that reads the .forward file.
I resolved it by adding 'w' in DOVELMTP_MAILER_FLAGS in the mailer definition.

Now I have the hardlinks if I send a message to multiple users (in the  
same smtp transaction) and the .forward file working.

I can send my config if useful to someone.
