[Mailman-Users] Clarification on filtering messages going to Mailman lists

I can see FAQ 4.15 on using procmail to filter email before Mailman gets 
it.  I have seen discussions in the archives about using other spam 
software to filter, as well as a "wish list" request to have Mailman 
itself handle "out of office" replies.  Also a long thread about idiotic 
software and users and needing to look for hundreds of different 
variations on the "out of office" message.

Can I safely conclude that Mailman is not designed in any way to filter 
these kinds of messages itself?

The Topics area is really designed to identify types of messages to send 
to the subscribers, not to identify bins no one would want to see, right?
