 My experience is that greylisting requires at least 2 failed attempts.
Maybe my pf.conf isn't setup properly. But, there's always 1 'extra' failure
that seems to me should pass through.

Correct. One *message* - two (or more) failed attempts before delivery. Extra failed attempts can sometimes happen - it depends on sender's retry frequency compared to spamd_flags values.
