In gnus-select-group-hook I set bbdb/news-auto-create-p to true in
(some) mail-groups and false otherwise (so I do not automatically pick
up people from newsgroups, rss-feeds etc).

That works well for me.

I set it like this:

  ; Only let bbdb auto-create in some groups:
  (setq gnus-select-group-hook
        '(lambda ()
           (setq bbdb/news-auto-create-p
                  (string-match "^nnml:" gnus-newsgroup-name)
                  (not (or (string-match "^nnml:spam" gnus-newsgroup-name)
                           (string-match "^nnml:virus" gnus-newsgroup-name)

(I can not remember where I stole^Wgot it from originally).

Did you read the manual?
