I wouldn't think the cam noise would be anywhere near the frequency range that the knock sensor is tuned to but I am no physicist. I would believe that the cams caused additional knock to occur because the oem tune is in no way suitable for more aggressive lift/duration cams. It's not even suitable for the stock equipment.
