Because that's the definition of what the mailscanner spam lists do. If
listed, tag as spam, no matter what SpamAssassin has to say about it.
Period. No scoring, No nothing. 1 hit = instant spam tag.

Basically the spam-lists are intended for those who want to just use
RBLs as a block criteria. If you want to use scoring, then do it in your
SpamAssassin configuration.
