ELinux is preventing /usr/libexec/dovecot/dovecot-auth (dovecot_auth_t)
"create" to <Unknown> (dovecot_auth_t).

Detailed Description
SELinux denied access requested by /usr/libexec/dovecot/dovecot-auth. It is
not expected that this access is required by /usr/libexec/dovecot/dovecot-
auth and this access may signal an intrusion attempt. It is also possible
that the specific version or configuration of the application is causing it
to require additional access.

You can create a module to correct this problem, put the logs errors in a file and use audit2allow to generate a module and that module you can
use without any permission issue

cat filename | audit2allow -M localDovecotAuth

here you can use the localDovecotAuth module, which you created

Try foolowing more about creating modules
