Most email is retrieved with fetchmail from various external mailboxes. Thus, features like rejecting mail or greylisting makes no sense, because the mail has already been accepted elsewhere. How can I disable them? Basically I want to configure rspamd to only add headers and never reject any email. The headers are needed to move spam to the junk folder with a sieve script.

You are using a settings map without any trigger (rcpt, from, 
authenticated, etc.). The example has "authenticated = true" set as 

It does not make sense to use a settings map to enable a setting as 
global default anyway.

Use actions.conf to set reject = null
