truncate messages over size limit - when?

the amavis docs say that amavis:

does not load entire mail into memory, so there are no arbitrary size
limitations and out-of-memory conditions while transfering, decomposing,
virus scanning, quarantining (including SQL quarantining of arbitrary size
mail); an exception is mail passed to SpamAssassin, which, due to the way SA
works, needs to be in memory, but a size limit can be specified above which
SA is not called, or (starting with 2.6.3) SpamAssassin can still be called
but be given a truncated message;

but the rest of docs indicate that spamassassin is not being called if
message exceeds this limit.

Does amavis automatically truncate messages to size limit or should I
configure it to do so?
