Testing myself, I cannot reproduce the problem you describe.  Can you give a 
reproducible example?

I tried:

xdg-email rdieter-foo at bar.com

and my email client opens correctly (with rdieter-foo at bar.com as expected, 
instead of something percent-encoded as you suggested would happen).

Fwiw, it happens the same for me whether I include your suggested fix or
