Ah, right. From the documentation:

   By default, those fields listed in the DKIM specification as "SHOULD" be
   signed (RFC6376, Section 5.4) will be signed by the filter.

That inclues In-Reply-To, so that explains why it's in "h=". If it's the
thing breaking your signatures, however, that means its value is being
changed post-signing.

If your posts are transiting lists, my guess is the list is moving that
value to References:, and replacing the value of In-Reply-To: with the
Message-Id: you generated.

You could try using a more restrictive SignHeaders set.
