I won't guarantee that there's no way, but as long as you don't change
the pipeline, I believe that there are no configurations that would
allow a moderated member to post without an Approved: header/line
without going through moderation.
Of course, if there are unmoderated members or non-members allowed to
post, the moderated member could spoof one of these other addresses
and post that way, but you seem to have that covered.
