does MS spam list increase SA score?

   Dumb question, but if I have the "Spam List = " setting
defined, eg:

Spam List = CBL ORDB-RBL

then does a hit against each list add to the SA score somehow?
It doesn't look like it.  Can hits on these blocklists be used
to raise the score, by way of definitions in spam.assassin.prefs.conf?

I've never really used this feature much before, so I'm a little
puzzled as to what it actually does to a message.  Make sure that
it gets tagged with "{Spam?}"?  Raise the SA score?  I see that 4.25-14
has the "Spam Lists To Reach High Score" feature, but what else happens?

My setup: Sol 9, sendmail 8.12.10, MS 4.25-14, SA 2.61.
