what is the correlation between spam weight and probablility

We are using ME Enterprise v. 6.0 on Windows Server 2003 x64 SP2.
We have spam protection enabled and assign various "positive weightings" to the various spam detection options. (See Spam Protection in the ME control panel)
In the MTA filter report we can clearly see how messages are marked with these weights. e.g.

SMTP [System Spam Filter] ADD_HEADER [SMTP:bounce-64-25293-34255@some.domain.com] 123.123.123.123 High (235)

However, when we setup our filters and more specifically the filter criteria "Where the message has over a certain spam probability" the option to indicate is a "percentage" value. e.g. ME suggests (values over 90% recommended).

My question is, how does the "spam weighting" correlate to the spam probability as a percentage or do they? Am I not comparing apples to apples here?
