MM3 injects an Archived-At header, as the permalink URLs for individual
messages are generated based on a hash of a suitable subset of the message
headers (I don't know if it's possible to opt-in to including those in the
message footer or not, though).

As Barry explained, this isn't possible with pipermail, as those archive
URLs are dynamically generated and are completely independent of the
message contents and metadata (this is also why you can't safely delete
messages from MM2 archives: doing so will renumber the archive URLs for all
subsequent messages).
