If there's no DKIM, then there's not really any obvious domain to be
about when it comes to reputation, so I don't think that's a question
makes sense (at least not without more details as to what you mean
by seeing a domain).

Not all the time, no. But if the domain token attached to the message
via DKIM is on a whitelist, or if there's a significant positive
then it's quite likely that the DKIM based reputation would override
other measures (and would likely be used to short circuit analysis
to avoid expensive content-based work).

Yup. That's probably out of scope for this discussion, anyway.
