Why not? A 'QMAILQUEUE' set to 'qmail-scanner' will invoke it.
Regardless if it was set by surrounding environment or tcpserver.

This can be done by a '127.:allow,QMAILQUEUE=".../qmail-queue",...'
rule in .cdb file. That way all messages from localhost are not
inspected by qmail-scanner. But what's your problem with this?

So the mentioned solution would be the "as less to configure as
possible" one. Set 'qmail-scanner' for all connections and define
exceptions (localhost, LAN) separately. What's your problem with this?

You can. And before you try to argue qmail-scanner will not scan for
anything when only RELAYCLIENT is set by a .cdb file rule: it WILL
parse the message through virus scanner! Set 'RELAYCLIENT' only
prevents qmail-scanner from passing message through spamassassin!
Please inspect qmail-scanner sources if you don't trus me.
