Those 20 megabytes were not a single message but a mailbox containing
multiple messages, were they?

This is not the right way to deal with multiple messages in a mailbox.
It may appear to work at the first glance but many messages can be
interpretered incorrectly (e.g. BASE64 and QP parts not decoded, binary
attachments not ignored, header tokens not tagged).
You should have done bogofilter -n -M < sisterN to train mailboxes.
Afaik, there is no simple command to get some kind of aggregate scoring
results for multiple messages in a mailbox but you can do that with
