Thanks to everyone who replied, the solution is detailed below
Copy /usr/share/sendmail/cf/domain/generic.m4 -> /etc/mail/custom-domain.m4
softlink /etc/mail/custom-domain.m4 ->
Edit /etc/mail/custom-domain.m4 and remove the EXPOSED_USERS('root') line
Edit <hostname>.m4 and change the DOMAIN(generic) line to
Somehow this broke Make, so I ended up having to manually nuke
<hostname>.cf and <hostname>.submit.cf to force it to rebuild them.
Then a simple "make install" followed by "make stop; make start" and the
mail began to flow.
That allowed my previous masquerading configuration to work correctly,
and I'm now getting my periodic emails.
