You snipped out the relevant paragraph I copied from the manual. If you
look at it, you will see that it does not mention string as an option
for org-html-postamble. Furthermore, the previous paragraph, which talks
about org-html-preamble, which does mention string, states that if the
string matches the name of a function, it will be called 9and expected
to return a string). This is not mentioned at all in the doc string for

Therefore, I still think there is inconsistency between what the doc
string of the variable states and what the manual states. There is no
mention of function matching against strings in the cod string of the
variable. There is no mention of string as an option in the paragraph
referring to org-html-postamble in the manual.

This is all an aside to the actual bug, so please don't miss that
(unless it has been fixed) i.e. a org-html-postamble string with a space
in it does not work.
