I guess if configure some mail addresses let's say in file://$LOCAL_CONFDIR/local.d/maps.d/spamtrap.map and they are not existing in the view of postfix (Recipient address rejected: User unknown;) then the spamtrap is not really working, right?

I don't know anything about how Postfix would deal with this but it's
more or less what I do with Sendmail - although I force Sendmail to
accept *any* recipient address, and then look for spamtrap addresses
in a milter.  This is so that I can grab the offending mail message,
analyze it, drop it into a database and put it into an abuse report.

One thing to watch out for if you do anything like this is that you
won't want to RELAY mail for random addresses back out to the world.
