I concur. Gmail does server-side filtering and labelling, not client-side.

When I go into my gmail settings, I can see a list of filters, one of which
is "Matches: list:(gnucash-user@gnucash.org)/Do this: apply label
'gnucash/gnucash-user" and all my gnucash-user email is labelled as a
gnucash-user email.

Google Inbox is a different front-end for the same mail back-end, and it
uses (again, serverside) a Bayesian categorizer to place emails in
user-definable "bundles", such as "gnucash". It does this behind the scenes
by adding a gmail label to the mail.

Which means that when I look at this email in gmail, I'll see it
listed as "gnucash
gnucash/gnucash-user [GNC] Re: GNC Addition of Mailing List Subject
Prefix", which is getting a bit ridiculous.
