That's plausible.  And in fact, I do see a number of dirs with
owner:group set to root:root under /var/spool/postfix.

But, I have no idea what the permissions should be.  How did you figure
it out?

BTW, I'm running postfix in a chroot, though I'm not sure why that would
break it now when it didn't in the past (there are no errors when
postfix is started).
