One of users on Directadmin forums reported the issue:

I have set up dmarc on the server. I am receiving daily reports from Yahoo and Hotmail with no problem. But email reports from Gmail from address: are frozen and rejected by the server.

Be careful if you use your personal email address here as no filtering of attachments will be done to delivery emails into it after you modify /etc/system_filter.exim.

P.S. This article does not cover a process of adding needed records into DNS zone of your domain, so that you could start receiving DMARC reports. This article only instructs on how to stop exim from filtering emails'  attachments for a particular email address which is handled by exim on your Directadmin server.
