That looks like two different cf files. Mimedefang looks first for
sa-mimedefang.cf (man mimedefang-filter lists the 4 places it looks) and
spamassassin will use local.cf. spamassassin --lint -D should tell you
which cf files the spamassassin binary is using when being called directly.

On my FreeBSD server I symlink /usr/local/etc/mail/spamassassin/local.cf
to /usr/local/etc/mimedefang/sa-mimedefang.cf to avoid this.
