SA bumps up scores for AWL entries

Does anyone understand why SA bumps scores up instead of down for 
addresses that are in the auto white-list database? I.e. here is an 
example spam report:

not spam, SpamAssassin (not cached, score=2.302, required 3.5, AWL 1.34, 
BAYES_50 0.00, NO_REAL_NAME 0.96)

Isn't the point of auto white listing to reduce the score?
