In a custom hook you can obtain a list of rules that triggered
in SpamAssassin, and call quarantining when desired.

Something like (untested):

     package Amavis::Custom;
     use strict;

     sub new { my($class,$conn,$msginfo) = @_; bless {}, $class }

     sub checks {
       my($self,$conn,$msginfo) = @_;
       my $tests = $msginfo->supplementary_info('TESTS');
       if ($tests =~ /(^|,)MYRULENAME/) {
         Amavis::do_quarantine($msginfo, undef,
           ['clean-quarantine'], 'local:sample-%m');
