Mine did too. However there are no addresses in the files.

As per the mailscanner instructions, I have 
"exim_tidydb /var/spool/exim_incoming retry >/dev/null" in
cron.daily. Running these jobs manually make the files appear. Can
they safely be omitted from cron.daily? They do not seem to make any
sense to me, as there should be no database in the incoming queue to
tidy up...
