The dccm man page talks about the whiteclnt file and does not mention

The dbclean man page talks about /var/dcc/whitelist

No, changes to all of the DCC configuration files are noticed and acted
upon automatically, with the debatable exception of the server whitelist
files, /var/dcc/whitelist and /var/dcc/grey_whitelist.  Those are read
only by dbclean.

At midnight local time dccm sends a message to the system log like:

Sep  6 00:00:00 calcite dccm[6910]: 1.2.52 greylist embargoed X messages to Y targets; rejected Z messages for X1 targets and discarded for X2 targets among X3 total messages for Q targets since 09/05/04 00:00:00

(The count of rejected mail in the sample message I just checked looks bogus.
I'll have to look into that.)
