Rats, they should fix their systems. RFC-1036 is still in effect, and it
writes (in section 2.1.6) "the existing convention (...) of starting the
path with the host name, an "!", and the user name, should be maintained
when possible." As leafnode doesn't have the user name, it inserts

As a workaround that doesn't involve patching leafnode, if you can
customize the headers your newsreader uses in new posts or followups,
you can just tell it to insert "Path: not-for-mail" into the header,
leafnode will then pass this on unaltered (without adding itself). This
might be considered a bug but now that it has a use as a workaround, I'm
not going to fix it in 1.9.
