I found this line in /usr/share/spamassassin/50_scores.cf:
score DCC_CHECK 0 1.37 0 2.17

It means DCC will only score 0 1.37 or 2.17 depending on your SA 
config.  With Bayes on, the score will be 2.17.

If you believe it should be higher, just add the following line to 
spam.assassin.prefs.conf and reload MS:
score DCC_CHECK new_score

The following comes from man Mail::SpamAssassin::Conf :
  If only one valid score is listed, then that score is always used for 
a test.

  If four valid scores are listed, then the score that is used depends 
on how SpamAssassin is being used. The first score is used when both 
Bayes and network tests are disabled (score set 0). The second score is 
used when Bayes is disabled, but network tests are enabled (score set 
1). The third score is used when Bayes is enabled and network tests are 
disabled (score set 2). The fourth score is used when Bayes is enabled 
and network tests are enabled (score set 3).
