ok - I think we're coming closer to the point.
It will certainly be sasldb2, because I have an old machine with SMTP AUTH
users who are contained in /etc/sasldb2
I want to transfer these users to the new machine without having them to
assign new passwords.
Given the scenario that I copy the old /etc/sasldb2 to the new machine,
how could postfix there authenticate these SMTP AUTH users?

see above - the decision is already taken by the fact of the migration.
