Glyn figured out the problem (see other thread). With
bbdb/gnus-update-records-p set to nil, I can set bbdb-mua-auto-update-p
to something like

defun my-bbdb-select-message ()
  "Add people to bbdb when in certain groups."
  (cond ((string-match "^nnimap:INBOX" gnus-newsgroup-name)
        ((eq major-mode 'message-mode)

...and it actually takes effect.

Problem solved :-).
