MailScanner ignored?

I'm probably missing something, but I've never seen this before.

This message got through mailscanner and no mailscanner headers were
applied.  I checked the logfile on the handling mailserver for the
appropriate MessageID and there is no question that MailScanner checked
the message...

When SPAM gets through (very infrequently) I normally check the headers
to make sure the message was scanned and to evaluate the score received.
Did MailScanner stop processing this message because of the
"X-AntiAbuse" headers?
