=> To turn-off auto-whitelist : 
vi /etc/mail/spamassassin/v310.pre
remove the following line : 
loadplugin Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::AWL

http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/spamassassin/branches/3.1/UPGRADE states :
- The use_auto_whitelist config option has been moved to a user config
  option, this allows individual users to turn on or off whitelisting
  regardless of what is set in the system config.  If you would like to
  disable AWL (auto-whitelist) on a site-wide basis, then you can comment
  out the plugin in "v310.pre".
