Yes, that's exactly that feeling I have about lots of questions here indeed.

It actually has:

$ rspamadm confighelp -k max_message

Showing help for keyword max_message:
Configuration element: .options.max_message
	Description: Maximum size of the message to be scanned (50Mb by default)
	Type: size
	Required: false
