I am afraid that transition packets always were just laid in the
corresponding spool outbound directory of the target node, without any
logic related to further relaying/transitioning. So you always had to
specify the full route.

But I also can not find any reason why not to look at destination node's
"via" option too. I think it would be safe to add automatic
transitioning if "via" is not empty for the destination node. It should
perfectly fit in your case where you do not specify the full path.

"via" option in nncp.hjson is just a default value for the specified
node of the -via option.
