Mailman does not have this functionality, no.

If the signature (or other additional stuff) was enclosed in a 
separate MIME bodypart, that could potentially be filtered out 
through the "Content filtering" facilities, but that would be about 
as far as we can go right now.

If you like, you may be able to create some additional Python code to 
handle this kind of stuff, but you'd need to find the necessary 
source module and make your changes there.

If you go this route, please consider contributing your changes back 
to the project through the appropriate SourceForge "patch" page for
