    You don't need to publish SPF to reject (if that is appropriate)
    external email with an envelope sender in your domain. Just use
    suitable access(5) rules for your domains.

    If that's your goal, do just that.
      smtpd_sender_restrictions =
        check_sender_access hash:/etc/postfix/sender-access

      # See REJECT external email with an internal sender address REJECT external email with an internal sender address
