I have very few customizations to begin with, and certainly none that
redefine 'reply' functions (am using stock Emacs 25.1). No fancy stuff
whatsoever!

I just did some further tests, sending mail to myself from other
accounts, putting multiple recipients in "CC" and/or "To". The behavior
is the same: 'r' just puts the sender into "To". :-(

I recall experimenting with Rmail last year using Emacs 24.5, and I
witnessed the same behavior as now regarding 'r' (again, during my
tests). In fact, last year I gave up on Rmail for this reason, but now
decided to try again.

Strange. I guess that I have to do further tests. (Otherwise I like
Rmail!)

Thanks for your reply.
