I've configured VA's junkbuster to have them land in a jarfile:

obelix:/etc/junkbuster# grep doubleclick.net jarfile

That said, they're not very interesting since id=A

It might have something to do with this:

obelix:/etc/junkbuster# grep -i agent config.cookies
> # user-agent specifies treatment of the "User-Agent:" (and "UA-*:") header(s)
> user-agent              Nutscrape/1.0 (CP/M; 8-bit; junkbuster)

or that:
> obelix:/etc/junkbuster# grep -i wafer config.cookies
> # if logging cookies into a jarfile, and no other wafers were
> # explicity set, then by default a vanilla wafer is sent with
> # setting 'suppress-vanilla-wafer' stops this vanilla wafer from
> #suppress-vanilla-wafer
> # add these wafers to each request header
> # multiple wafer lines are OK
> wafer           NOTE=Like most people, I want my browsing to be anonymous.
