Did you define my_postfixauth_private_t yourself? And if so, why?

All my sockets inside /var/spool/postfix/private/ have the type 
postfix_private_t. I don't see why you think a non-standard type would 
fit. And postfix_private_t gets automatically assigned and a custom 
fcontext should not be necessary.
