That should definitely not work, and it was a small bug that was
allowing it to work. The spec in the MailScanner.conf file clearly
# Each header should end in a ":", but MailScanner will add it if you
# Headers should be separated by commas or spaces.

And I have just tried a system with a rules file very much like yours
and it works just fine.
Sorry, but I cannot reproduce the problem.
