So, let me explain a bit about how this works and you'll probably understand what's going on in your case. There are two types of scrollbars in our current WebKitGTK+ widget: scrollbars operated and painted by WebKit and scrollbars operated and painted by GtkScrolledWindow. The GtkScrolledWindow policy only affects GtkScrolledWindow's scrollbars. Some pages, though, never use GtkScrolledWindow's scrollbars, they use tricks to make the page be sized to the exact size of the browser tab and then make their content block overflow, causing WebKit scrollbars to appear (as they would in any overflown div). That is for instance what gmail does and I don't think there's a lot that WebKitGTK+ can do for that case other than perhaps implementing frame flattening, but we'd have to investigate whether it really helps in your case.
