Special SQL mode?

I work with a non-standard variant of SQL. (Don't ask.) I have, accordingly, a 
non-standard variant of SQL mode, defined via `(define-derived-mode pp-sql-mode 
sql-mode "PP sql" ...)'.

The stock SQL mode entry has been replaced in auto-mode-alist by `("\\.sql\\'" 
. pp-sql-mode)'. There is no other even remotely SQL-ish entry in 
auto-mode-alist. The variable  magic-mode-alist  is NIL, and there are no local 
file variables. Finally, there is no '#!'.

Nonetheless, my *.sql files automatically get SQL[ANSI] mode.

If the info about Choosing Major Modes is right, then I should not (if I'm 
smart enough to understand it). Apparently I'm not. Does anyone have a hint 
about what I might have missed?
