The second '-r msg' in DCCM_ARGS in /var/dcc/dcc_conf 
changes the 4yz greylisting message.

Any message that is caught by the DCC client is white- or blacklisted
for both the DCC and greylisting.

I'm not sure what is meant by "sendmail's delaychecks."  If you mean
the adjustments misc/hackmc makes to generated from an .mc
file with

#   -O  modify the sendmail rules to treat access_db "OK" and "RELAY"
#       entries as white-listing the message.

then the answer should be yes, that turns off greylisting as well
as DCC mail target counting.  However, I'm not sure I've tested that.
I have often accidentally tested that TLS authentication turns off
