mailx has no mailwrapper USE flag; that flag is for MTAs only. Either the MTA supports USE=mailwrapper and then it RDEPENDs on it, or it doesn't and then it will install /usr/sbin/sendmail. Your steps to reproduce don't make sense.

My bad. It was a problem with an outdated qmail that I had prevented from upgrading. So there was nothing to pull the mailwrapper dependency.

OK, closing. Thanks for reporting back.
