That is not invalid syntax, export takes a list of shell-local variables
(and *optionally* value assignments like foo=bar) and exports the list
of local varaiables. dc_directives contains a list of variables
(dc_eximconfig_configtype et al.) and

export dc_directives ${dc_directives}

exports both dc_directives and any variable listed in dc_directives,
i.e. any external command will see both ${dc_directives} and
${dc_eximconfig_configtype} et al.
