maybe you just forgot to run the ant-spam-wizzard where you specify to move 
caught spam to your spam folder ?
note that any action done to spam is performed by kmail, not bogofilter (which 
just marks the mails) so you have to tell kmail what to do with recognized

here, kmail has a menu item called 'show filter protocol' under 'extras',
there you can first enable the protocol and then look at that to see what the

might be named different, though (I translated the menu entries from german,
didn't switch kmail language to english).
