Yes, there's active work in that area with a roadmap to include a filter
layer in OpenSMTPD 6.3 (to be released around May 2018).

They're likely going to be finished before we release OpenSMTPD 6.2 this
year in November but too close to make it to the release. We'll start to
ship them in snapshots as soon as we can though.

I'll talk about that at EuroBSDCon

not much, ruleset matching is quite fast and using SQL backend there are
probably some tricks to match patterns with just a few lines anyways.
