No such complains, I watch the maillog while trying to deliver. I can analyze
the other logs later but for now I have an impression that dccm reacts with
delay i.e. new records in whiteclnt are seen by it maybe after some time or
maybe after adding new records.

What I have seen for sure: I add new entry, try to deliver, the mail is
blocked. After some time dccm says:
start to (re)parse whitelist /var/dcc/whiteclnt
finished parsing whitelist /var/dcc/whiteclnt
- still no efect. I stop dccm, delete /var/dcc/whiteclnt.dccw, start dccm - the
mail for/from addresses marked 'ok' gets through.
