I wouldn't expect SpamAssassin to start dccifd.  To see how SpamAssassin
run dccproc, why not either look at the SpamAssassin source or
replace dccproc with a shell script that does `echo "$*" >/tmp/args`

reading the find manual is a good way to start answring such questions.
There are man pages for both dccproc and dccifd.

`cron-dccd -x` shows what that script does

The Logging thresholds are independent of the bulk mail thresholds.
I think the man page says -tALL,NEVER sets both the logging and bulk
thesholds to never.
