Thank you for doing so.

I continued to investigate on my side and found the issue. It was a
configuration error that was not evidenced by an error message. I
described it in this
Basically, I was using the auth-userdb instead of the auth-socket.
Instead of showing a protocol error in the logs and because the two
sockets have a compatible protocol, exim was blocking on authentication.
