spam quarantine not checked for virus?

Good day,

I have a message that was quarantined by MailScanner due to
SpamAssassin.  It was later requested.  Since it can't go back through
MailScanner, less it be quarantined as spam again, it was put directly
into /var/spool/mqueue.  It was caught later down the road by Norton
AntiVirus on our Lotus Notes server.

If messages are caught by SpamAssassin and moved to quarantine/*/spam,
are they also checked for viruses?
