SA sees both because it loads all .cf files in /etc/mail/spamassassin.
However, MD will not see the sa-mimedefang.cf in your spamassassin directory
if it already found one in /etc/mail.  Although this probably isn't the
recommended solution, I've found that killing /etc/mail/sa-mimedefang.cf
ensures that both MD and spamassassin see the same config options, even when
manually testing SA from the command line.
