You are misunderstanding that statement.  filename.rules.conf determines
whether a file should be blocked based on its name (regardless of other
checks) - but will not override the descision of another check (such as
virus scanning) to block the file.

I think with recent versions you can use a ruleset for 'Virus Scanning'
just to turn virus scanning on or off (In older versions this stopped
all processing - but IIRC this has now been changed)
