I ... do not think we're talking about the same thing?  In nmh's termology,
the smtp MTS is speaking directly to a SMTP server.  A local version of
exim4 wouldn't be involved.  This would involve configuration settings
like this:

send: -server some.smarthost.com -port submission -user address@hidden

It sounds like you're using the "sendmail/smtp" MTS, which runs whatever
you are using as a local copy of sendmail but speaks SMTP to it (generally
by using the -bs flag).  This is distinct from "sendmail/pipe" (the old
undocumented spost), which runs your sendmail with the -t flag and just
outputs the message via a pipe to the sendmail program.

I hope this all is clearer than mud :-/
