I myself do not know anything about WL.  I got the code that BBDB
uses to interact with WL from David Maus, whom I include in this

However, if I set up BBDB using the following code with my-mua bound to
gnus or vm, BBDB will query to auto-update the database whenever I
read a message, where the sender is not yet known to BBDB.

(require 'bbdb-loaddefs "/path/to/bbdb/lisp/bbdb-loaddefs.el")
(setq my-mua 'gnus)
(bbdb-initialize my-mua)
(bbdb-mua-auto-update-init my-mua)
(setq bbdb-mua-update-interactive-p '(query . create)
      bbdb-update-records-p 'query
      bbdb-mua-auto-update-p 'query)

Can you reproduce that this works for you as expected with Gnus?

If the BBDB interface with WL does not work as it should, could
someone look into this who is actually using WL and knows more about
it than me?
