I don't think there's any particular docs on the
$map_full_type_to_short_type_re table.  Basically it's a list of the
long descriptive names given by file(1) mapped to the common 3
character extension.  It shouldn't need any adjustments, so it's not
in a user config file.  But you can look at it for enlightenment.

You can find the $map_full_type_to_short_type_re list in the main
amavisd program. And I mean the amavisd PROGRAM, not a configuration
file.  Probably in /usr/sbin or similar.
