Thank you for your report.

I was unable to reproduce this problem using sa-compile 3.4.2-0ubuntu0.18.04.1. I started a fresh Bionic container, ran "apt install spamassassin" and then ran "sa-compile". It appears to have worked and returned with a successful (zero) exit status. The line /etc/mail/spamassassin/v342.pre did contain "parse_dkim_uris 1" by default. So it all looks fine to me.

Please provide exact steps to reproduce this problem and once done change the bug status back to New.
