Why is this domain spoofing.

It appears to me that Clamd is what's tripping the rule and not spamassassin.    I am a couple of versions behind so I'm not running a version capable of using the spam detection stuff within Clam, but I believe there is probably a similar rules file like spam.whitelist.rules for the virus scanners as well that you would need to put them in.   Since I'm not actually running a new version of MS I don't know this for sure, but since just about every other option can have a rules file, my guess is that this does too.
