These are the defaults:

  @banned_filename_maps = ( 'DEFAULT' );
  %banned_rules = ( 'DEFAULT' => $banned_filename_re);  # after-default
  $banned_filename_re = undef;

The $banned_filename_re is empty (undef) by default.
Its usual value comes from a config file, using an
assignment like:

  $banned_filename_re = new_RE(

This may or may not be the same as in the amavisd.conf file
of a distribution. Site installation or some package may have
its own ideas what should be assigned to $banned_filename_re.
It is also possible that a config file was not updated with
some upgrade of amavisd, so it may contain older settings.
