No. membership is tested only by email address, however a member's
address appearing in any of the headers From:, Reply-To: or Sender: or
in the unix From_ line which is normally the envelope sender's address
is sufficient. Actually, the list of headers searched for a member is
SENDER_HEADERS which can be set in mm_cfg.py, but the above four are
the default.

So if your test had ,e.g., Reply-To: your member address, or the
envelope was sent by your member address, that would suffice to get
the post accepted.
