FEATURE(`delay_checks') has no influence on any of my milters; 
+smtp-auth-ok is normally the default in all but a handful of SnertSoft 
milters. The only thing I check for is Spam: recipient entries in 
access.db and use them if present and not trumped by something else in 
the in lookup sequence.

In order for +smtp-auth-ok or the milter-link-auth tags to work, the 
{auth_authen} macro has to be passed between sendmail and libmilter, 
normally part of the default set. Please see this article concerning how 
to assert the defaults.
