I think this is the option you are looking for:

# The per-user files (bayes, auto-whitelist, user_prefs) are looked
# for here and in ~/.spamassassin/. Note the files are mutable.
# If this is unset then no extra places are searched for.
# If using Postfix, you probably want to set this as shown in the  
# line at the end of this comment, and do
#      mkdir /var/spool/MailScanner/spamassassin
#      chown postfix.postfix /var/spool/MailScanner/spamassassin
# NOTE: SpamAssassin is always called from MailScanner as the same user,
#       and that is the "Run As" user specified above. So you can only
#       have 1 set of "per-user" files, it's just that you might  
#       need to modify this location.
#       You should not normally need to set this at all.
SpamAssassin User State Dir = /var/spool/MailScanner/spamassassin

It's in MailScanner.conf and should be set if you are a Postfix user.
