It's based on the IP address of the host (Open Watcom server), not the
sender's email address.

Or am I confusing "host" with "sender"? Is this a routing problem?
That is, is the host they are getting the message from directly (not
ours) the problem?
There is no further routing involved.
And yet, when I have my D-Link router, which is physically attached to
my XP computer, send its log as email and download it to my XP
computer, it shows this routing:

Looks like at least three servers are involved. Allowing one for
receiving the message from the router and one for conveying the
message to my XP computer, that still leaves one intermediate server.
Are you sure there are no intermediate servers involved in your tests?
