When you configure the trash folder in the antispam plugin correctly, 
messages moved from spam to trash are not retrained as ham. With 
Thunderbird as your client in default configuation, the dovecot plugin 
config should look like:

antispam_trash: Trash
antispam_spam: Junk

You need to add the appropriate (default) folder names for all used 
clients though, or standardize the folders and let users adapt the 
settings in their clients.
