I think you want to check out the 'disablesid' option in your 
oinkmaster.conf file.  That will tell oinkmaster to disable the sids that 
you want when it updates your rules.  By default it will simply download 
the new rule files and put them where you tell it to.  If the new rule 
files don't exclude the same  sids you've excluded, the result is what 
you're describing.  The syntax in oinkmaster.conf is simply:

disablesid 123
