Nobody (that I saw) said spamassassin was not run. Spamassassin's 
bayesian filter does not run. And maybe some of the scores (the HTML 
related ones) are not optimized for the Debian lists (which are, thank 
god, mostly HTML free.) And, I guess, the charset related things are 
not configured optimally, either. If the spamassassin user is different 
for the various lists, then each list could be configured to score 
things in foreign character sets according to the expected language on 
that list. (Disclaimer: I do not know anything about the spamassassin 
setup on l.d.o. IANA{DD,L,...})
