CQ adds the “WAE” entities for awards and mults during contests.  From the current contest rules:
 
DXCC plus WAE countries: WAE: GM/Shetland (Shetland Islands), IG9/IH9 (African Italy – Lampedusa and Pantelleria Islands), IT, JW (Bear Island), TA1 (European Turkey), 4U1VIC (Vienna International Center), Z6 (Kosovo).

It's weird.  You are right, ARRL doesn't count Sicily as a separate identity, but CQ Magazine does for their awards. Unless they changed without saying anything.

IT9 should come up as Italy because Sicily is not one of the 340 DXCC Entities.

Sardinia, which is another Italian island, does count as a DXCC Entity.  It's prefix is IS0.
