It's supposed to.  RFCs 822 and 2822.  The parenthesis (unless
properly quoted) indicate a comment, which renderers and the like will
ignore just like a compiler or interpreter ignores comments in source
code.

If you want to see the raw encoding in mutt, press 'e' to edit the raw
message in $EDITOR.
