No, it does not:

* MAIL_GID [mailnull]
  The group name or id under which your MTA performs mail delivery

    Getting the value of MAIL_GID right is crucial to getting Mailman to work
    with your MTA.  By default this port works with Sendmail.  If you're
    using an alternative MTA installed from ports, you should set MAIL_GID at
    build time according to the following table.  You may use either the
    group name or the numerical GID.  (Please contact this port's maintainer
    if you wish to fill in the blanks or report mistakes!)

    MTA     | MAIL_GID       | Submitted by
    Exim3   | nobody (65534) | <wjv at FreeBSD.org>
    Exim4   | mail   (6)     | <wjv at FreeBSD.org>
    Postfix | mailman        | <vivek at khera.org>
    Qmail   | ???            |

    NOTE: for Postfix, the group may need to be 'nobody' if you are not
    using the Mailman integration for generating the postfix virtual and
    aliases files.
