You are taking that out of context, the previous sentence is:

"... the same hosts and networks as 'internal_networks', with the
addition of some hosts that are external to your organisation which you
trust to not be under the control of spammers."

The important thing is "trust to not be under the control of spammers",
it follows that such a server doesn't originate spam or forge headers.

Note that ALL_TRUSTED can include the case where a client authenticates
into the trusted network. In that case all of the Received headers are
trusted, but not all of the IP addresses are in the trusted network.
