No. The patch has absolutely no effect on uncaught bounces. Uncaught
bounces are messages sent to a LIST-bounces address that are not
VERPed and are not recognized as DSNs. If spam is sent to a
LIST-bounces address and makes it to Mailman, it will be an
unrecognized bounce. SpamDetect.py and header_filter_rules are not
involved at all in processing mail received at a LIST-bounces address.

Any change you observed in uncaught bounces is just a coincidence.
