FWIW, they don't. They set the header in one scenario only: when they
receive a message from one of their own users (via POST) that does not
have the header set. If the header is already set by the user, they
don't alter or replace it. And they don't add it, even if it is absent,
to a post received via IHAVE from another news server.
