The only controls are generic_nonmember_action for posts from
non-members and member_moderation_action for posts from moderated

The setting you're looking for doesn't currently exist. I agree that it
would be good to be able to specify the disposition of "too big"
messages and also to specify the disposition of messages caught in the
Privacy options...->Recipient filters, but this ability doesn't
currently exist. Messages caught in any of these filters are always
held for "moderator" approval.
