Mailman doesn't know anything about spam or spam flags.  Mailman's

There is also an extension, not maintained by this project, which
calls SpamAssassin from Mailman, but I don't know how that works.  It
may reject mail itself, or it may pass on the responsibility to the
filters as above.

You need to tell us more about how spam filtering is configured on
