I don't think this has ever been supported. From man

       List of hosts to which all outgoing mail is passed to  and  that
       takes  care of delivering it. Each of the hosts is tried, in the
       order specified (See  exim  specification,  chapter  20.5).  All
       deliveries  go  out  to  TCP  port 25 unless a different port is
       specified after the host name, separated from the host  name  by
       two  colons.  Colons  in IPv6 addresses need to be doubled. If a
       port number follows, IP addresses may be enclosed  in  brackets,
       which  might  be  the only possibility to specify delivery to an
       IPv6 address and a different port. Examples:

dc_smarthost is only a list of hostnames with optional ports.

If you want to have other functionality, I would like to suggest that
you edit the configuration files themselves.

I'd like to close this issue.
