Are you sure that's what it says and not tokens from 1 message? The
reason I ask is that it's practically impossible for Bayes to find only
one token, so it would be a sign that something is wrong if some part
of spamassassin is telling you that.

spamassassin -r is mainly for reporting spam to SpamCop, Pyzor, etc,
training Bayes is just a side-effect. But there's no grounds for
thinking the training is going to be any different to running sa-learn
or auto-training.
