Yes - I see now that spamass-milter explicitly claims responsibility in 
the man page (and makes no apologies!)

      -u defaultuser
              Pass the username part of the first recipient to spamc 
with the
              -u flag.  This allows user preferences files to be used. 
If the
              message is addressed to multiple recipients, the username
              defaultuser is passed instead.

              Note that spamass-milter does not know whether an email is 
              ing or outgoing, so a message from <> to
              <> will make spamass-milter pass -u user2 to

I think I'll have to take it up with my spamass-milter configuration.
