You know when you could swear that you have been through all your
setting at least a dozen times, but fail to see/remember that one thing?
Well I forgot about a script/cron that would rebuild a white list from
data I stored.  I have gone through and remove all whitelists to where
I only have the MailScanner whitelist. So far no unexpected white listed

The only question left in my mind, what other ways could an email be

There are a number of things that can do this.  I would need to see mail 
logs to know what is happening for sure but SpamAssassin has it's own 
list of safe senders that are whitelisted in specific situations when 
SPF and/or DKIM check pass.

This SA whitelisting can trigger MailScanner whitelisting in the mail 
logs so please post the log entries so we don't have to guess.
