does DNSSEC verification occur only if opendkim is compiled with
--with-unbound=... ?

this is very confusing to users. Opendkim can act a signer or verifier.
In this context opendkim decides to sign or verify. Opendkim logs here some
marginal intermediate results. But the final result (sign or verify) would
only be logged if syslogsuccess is set to yes. But this is unfortunly not
the default.

in your setup you call opendkim twice for each message.
first time when it arrived via smtp an a second time if spamd reinjects
the mail via smtp at localhost.

You should remove smtpd_milters=...opendkim from and put it
in the as an option to the external smtp-server
(I assume, you have already 2 smtp servers in your )
