Not seeing it here.  But (on the other hand) this may be why this is
in MailScanner.conf:

    # To avoid resource leaks, re-start periodically. Forces a re-read of all
    # the configuration files too, so new updates to the bad phishing sites list
    # are read frequently.
    Restart Every = 14400

Is this parameter enabled for you?
