There are a few things going on depending on digest format. In a MIME
format digest the boiler plate, the digest_header, the TOC, the
individual messages and the digest_footer are all separate MIME parts.

In the RFC 1153 compliant plain text digest (beginning in MM 2.1.15),
the digest_footer is added as a separate message with Subject: Digest
Footer, so it should be visible in an exploded digest.

However, all this is moot as digest headers and footers cannot be
personalized so it is not possible to put a "one click" unsubscribe link
in either format of digest.
