And it's not supposed to. Messages which exceed max_message_size (not
max_size_limit) are held, not discarded or rejected.

Also, if for example, the message is a post from a moderated member,
the message will be dealt with according to member_moderation_action
regardless of how big it is because membership and moderation are
considered before the various miscellaneous holds.
