No.  Being based in a comparison of IP addresses derived from a DNS RR

You said:

1. conflating sending and receiving
2. failure to understand fundamental properties of SMTP, e.g.
   MAIL FROM remains unchanged during transport
3. attempts to assign a relationship between domain names
   and IP addresses for sending email; there is no such

All apply (conflating sending/receiving, failure to account for SMTP
with mechanisms other than TCP, attempts to assign IP/domain relationship
for sending), and there was also "etc." which you conveniently failed to
quote, and that covers a slew of practical problems with EHLO/HELO.
