Not all messages are scanned?

Yes. All messages are sent to SA regardless of their size.
Of the long messages, only part of a message is sent
(approx: mail header plus the first $sa_mail_body_size_limit bytes).
If $sa_mail_body_size_limit is undefined then there is no limit,
i.e. all messages are sent to SA in their entirety.

The 'SpamAssassin diagnostics' as reported by logwatch refers to
  SA (warn|info|error):
messages found in the log. Things like:

SA info: pyzor: [51215] error: TERMINATED, signal 15
SA info: dns: select interrupted
SA info: rules: meta test ... has dependency ... with a zero score
SA info: zoom: able to use 1011/1371 'body_0' compiled rules ...

These are mostly harmless/informational if they occur only occasionally.
