I turned logging up to 5, 477 lines of log for 1 email... now that is verbose!

It turned out the issue was the default for:
# $final_spam_destiny       = D_PASS;
Changed to 
$final_spam_destiny       = D_DISCARD;
And for email with a score above spam_kill_level get discarded to quarantine.

I was confused by the term discard.

Kind regards
