It sounds like a hit on the 'Spam Lists' causes the existing $spamreport
variable to be either overwritten (thus loosing the data from SA) or
when SA runs it is not adding to the existing $spamreport value.

Turn off the 'Spam Lists' feature and see what happens.  As you appear
to have 'Check SpamAssassin If On Spam List = yes' there is little
benefit in using this feature anyway as SA is more efficient at this; it
queries RBLs in parallel.  If you trust SORBS to mark your mail as spam;
then simply increase the equivalent SA score.
