Nope, your understaing is totally correct, but...

... for the stable/olstable branch is my understanding that only security
bugfixes are corrected, so if the clamav update does not closes any
serious flaw you will keep seeing the clamav warning at the logs. But
don't worry, your clients are still protected, your AV firms updated and
your files analyzed for any treat.
This is incorrect. Here are the announcement of squeeze-updates,
with a list of reasons why squeeze-updates will push ahead a release...

It even mentions clamav as one which needs to be current to be useful.

Our expectations for squeeze-updates to release clamav ahead of stable
merely to be current are correct.

Note you don't need to use squeeze-updates, so we are opting into something
which can be a little more bleeding edge.

If you only want security and bug fixes that is handled by security repo
and standard stable repo.
