You are saying RSpamD checked the e-mail againsta a blacklist on planfix.ru?
This makes everything even more confusing.
I have configured such blacklist. I was under the impression that the 
"planfix.ru" in that TAG or message is the subject of the score. I. e. 
the domain name that got extracted from e-mail contents or headers.

Are you sure about in saying that my Rrspamd is using a blacklist hosted 
on planfix.ru? This would be somewhat worrying, because I don't have 
anything mentioning "planfix.ru" in the Rspamd configuration files.

For instance what does the ":dkim" in the TAG string mean.
As in what sort of check was performed.

If my assumption is correct and this is not a blacklist and actually the 
tag subject, then it totally strange that some sort of DKIM check was 
run on the domain name because the domain does not have that requirement 
in it's DMARC nor SPF.

The e-mail was not DKIM signed nor did the domain warrant any such 
signage, yet it triggered a score... and the confusing bit for me is why 
DKIM is mentioned there in the tag.

I can somewhat understand the logic that the ":dkim" in the tag string 
is just to inform that some sort of optional check may or may not have 
been made about the e-mails DKIM.
I don't agree to this logic, but ok.
