See bug #143189 for more info.

When spamd is run as root, config files (like Bayes database) are
inaccessible because they are in /root/.spamassassin and spamd
fallback to nobody.

those are root's configs.  normal users will use their own configs. 
what behavior are you seeing that leads you to suspect otherwise?
