It's been a long time but I'm pretty sure I've seen situations in which it made

That's really the realm of LMTP, final delivery, not relaying.

No, it's not.   I didn't say anything about this being used for final delivery.   The point is that there are legitimately SMTP servers that potentially accept traffic from the public Internet, that aren't full-blown MTAs.
