Oh, here's the comment from the latest ChangeLog which tells you a bit 
about the new "file -i" feature:

3 Implemented file MIME type checking, as reported by the "file -i" command.
  This includees 3 new settings, which all work just like their non-MIME
  brothers: "Log Permitted File MIME Types", "Allow File MIME Types" and 
  File MIME Types".
  The main use is via the filetype.rules.conf file, where a new optional 
  may be added just after the regular expression field (just after the 2nd
  field in each line). If this field is added, then the "file -i" command is
  run on every batch of messages and the output checked against the MIME 
  specified in the newly inserted 3rd field (out of fields 1-5 on each 
line of
  filetype.rules.conf files).
