I'm a bit confused as to where you are putting these. The ones starting
with ^Subject: look like regexps that would be in header_filter_rules
and the ones starting with from: would also work in header_filter_rules
but look more like bounce_matching_headers entries.
It is best to use header_filter_rules for everything as it gives more
control over what to do with a matching message. In that case, it would
be better if the from ones were like
to avoid a match on something like
Subject: message from: someone @qq.com
Also, if those from: lines are in bounce_matching_headers, it only
results in those messages being held and presumably the same end result
is obtained with Privacy options... -> Sender filters ->
generic_nonmember_action = Hold

You need to understand regular expressions
'?' has a special meaning in a regexp. You need
to match something with a Subject beginning with =?utf-8?B?
