X-Spam header missing regardless of low sa_tag_level_deflt but scores present in logs

Thanks for your help Benny and Matus!

It seems like my problem was indeed @local_domains_acl. I've now had it 
set to "." for a few hours and all my mail is getting tagged as it 
should. While migrating, I had noticed the $sql_select_policy in my old 
configuration, but since it's not mentioned anywhere in the official 
documentation, I didn't realise its connection to @local_domains_acl. Is 
this something I should report somewhere as a documentation bug?

Concerning the RelayedOpenRelay. It seems while @mynetworks and 
@mynetworks_maps are mentioned in examples in the documentation, its 
default value isn't defined and it isn't there by default in the Debian 
configuration. Does that mean it's empty by default instead of In that case it sounds like that should be documented and I 
should perhaps file a bug/patch to change the default configuration for 
Debian. What do you guys think?
