I'm confused here.  Sorry.
In a ruleset action node $NVA will resolve to the agent address, which should
resolve to a hostname.
But to get attribute number one, you use $NVATTR_1 not $1 like you do for trapd.

But I think your script is probably getting the variable correctly.
To prove that I would add this to it right at the beginning:
     echo $NVA  >  /myfile
     echo $NVATTR_1 > /myfile
     .....
     echo $NVATTR_n > /myfile

for however many you have and go look in myfile after it executes
