The HOWTO by Steve has 3 specific lines in the postfix configuration,
did you put all three?

1 smtpd_milters = inet:
2 non_smtpd_milters = $smtpd_milters
3 milter_default_action = accept

I believe if you do postconf -a, it should print out all configuration
settings (as read from its config files). If the above settings are
not in it, then you are right, it is likely reading a different config
file than what you thought.

strace -e trace=file postconf -a # (or trace=open)

Will show what files are accessed when you run the postconf command.
