Thanks Dieter for clarifying this. I was not sure and could not find anything on these so thought I would ask. I think I got the idea they might restrict mime types from Archetypes which has a similarly named method.

I see many products like this:

 'filter_content_types' : 0,
 'allowed_content_types': (),

These are used as defaults for "Filter content types"

They have nothing to do with MIME types and uploading.

Instead, they control what other types can be contained
in a folder like type.
