Something odd with mail routing

I'm aware of reports of issues with mail delivery recently ... do not know if this is related or sheds any light on matters.

I have two domains on my account, a lot of mail boxes and catch all set.

All of the historical email addresses for my old business domain t* route via aliases to one mailbox.  This evening I received two quarantine notifications in that mailbox reported to be sent to addresses never used with that domain AND NOT MATCHING AN ALIAS to that mailbox.

How can that happen - I would have expected such emails to go to the account's catch all mailbox.

From: "Email Alerting Service" <>
To: <Lincoln@t*>
Subject: Alert:  An email addressed to you has been quarantined

MIME-Version: 1.0

'Lincoln@' is not an alias of the mail box t*top ... so how does it end up there and not in my default emailbox?
