I found that I need to set Rebuild Bayes Every = 86400 (for example) and
bayes_auto_expire 0 in spam.assassin.prefs.conf. So I suggest changing
the comment before 'Rebuild Bayes Every' setting in MailScanner.conf to:

# If you are using the Bayesian statistics engine on a busy server,
# you may well need to force a Bayesian database rebuild and expiry
# at regular intervals. This is measures in seconds.
# 1 day = 86400 seconds.
# To disable this feature set this to 0.
# If you enable this feature, set bayes_auto_expire 0 in spam.assassin.prefs.conf.
Rebuild Bayes Every = 0
