[Mailman-Users] content filtering not working as expected

I have a 2.1.5 installation, and one list is using the following
content_filter options:

  filter_content = True
  filter_mime_types = ''

  pass_mime_types = """multipart

  convert_html_to_plaintext = True
  filter_action = 1                 # reject

We just received a message with a application/octet_stream
attachment. My interpretation of the settings are that the message
should have been rejected. However, the message merely got
filtered, the attachment was stripped, and the message passed
through without an attachment.

Is this a bug or expected behaviour?
