No, dccm greylisting does not override DCC results.

The following in line in your message on 25 Feb 2017 21:53:29 +0000
strongly suggests that you are running incoming mail past DCC twice:

] Feb 25 15:39:37 <my hostname> sendmail[53702]: v1PLdb7d053702: Milter delete: header X-DCC--Metrics: <my hostname> 1356; bulk Body=1 Fuz1=1 Fuz2=many

The dccm log file you posted today came from the first sendmail+dccm pass,
which you have configured with -aIGNORE or with a whiteclnt line to ignore
DCC results.

The second DCC pass found a characteristic that you have whitelisted.

Perhaps you are using dccproc for the 2nd DCC pass.

Please recall
