Your initial post suggests that you have a require of bbdb-autoloads, that
doesn't exist in bbdb 3. I have

(bbdb-initialize 'vm 'message 'gnus)

And I think that is more or less it!

Though I added

(setq bbdb-mua-update-interactive-p '(query . create))
;; Make sure we look at every address in a message and not only the
;; first one
(setq bbdb-message-all-addresses t)
;; use ; on a message to invoke bbdb interactively
 (lambda ()
   (define-key gnus-summary-mode-map (kbd ";") 'bbdb-mua-edit-field)))

to get some things back from what I was used to with bbdb 2

You might need to ensure that when you built bbdb, it found and built the
vm interface code.
