You probably do not need to have 'greylistd' do the whitelisting; you 
can simply excempt the matching mails from the greylist check 
(untested!) in the first place:

	defer message    = greylisted..
	      condition  = ${if match{$local_part}{\N-(join|request|leave)$\N} {false}{true}}
              !senders   = :
              domains     = +local_domains
              verify      = recipient
              set acl_m9  = $sender_host_address $sender_address $local_part@$domain
              set acl_m9  = ${readsocket{/var/run/greylistd/socket}{$acl_m9}{5s}{}{}}
              condition   = ${if eq {$acl_m9}{grey}{true}{false}}
