In the mimedefang-filter(5) man page, there's a section called
MAINTAINING STATE that shows the different groups of functions.  The
documentation is weak... it doesn't explicitly say that you can count
on the same process handling
filter_begin/filter/filter_multipart/filter_end, so I'll have to
fix that because you can in fact count on that.

I believe it's a function defined in the sample filter.
