No, you would need some trickery like this to fix the starting sequence:

/sbin/chkconfig --add spamassassin
LEVELS=$(/sbin/chkconfig --list spamassassin | sed -e 's/[0-6]:off//g;s/[^0-6]//g')
/sbin/chkconfig --del spamassassin
/sbin/chkconfig --add spamassassin
[ -n "$LEVELS" ] && /sbin/chkconfig --levels $LEVELS spamassassin on

The first --add makes sure that chkconfig knows about spamassassin for a
first-time install, and has no effect on upgrades.

The subsequent stuff records the current runlevels, removes the existing links,
adds in new ones, and restores the runlevels to the original settings.

A facility to do something like this would be nice to have within chkconfig
itself of course.
