The assumption is wrong - the score *is* changed as a result of the 'delete
as spam' action.  It rescores the message after training so the score you
are seeing is post-training.  The same thing happens with "Recover from
Spam" and IIRC the incremental training (but not necessarily training via
the Wizard/Manager).
