The -- flag is a special option that means "stop processing the
commandline here".   Check near the bottom of the manpage:

   -- spamc_flags ...
        Pass all remaining options to spamc.  This allows you to
        connect to a remote spamd with -d or -p.

So whem spamass-milter sees 

spamass-milter -d blah -- -d otherhost

It processes the first -d as a debug flag, and passes everything after
the -- to spamc.
