Ah, I misdiagnosed it. The message, an auto-discard notification, indeed 
had the list headers, but the message remained so spammy (even after -10 
for the list-id and -5 for my auto-white-list), that it still exceeded 5 
points and got wrapped in a SpamAssassin report that doesn't propagate the 
list headers into the wrapping message.

Sorry about the noise.
