Sure it has! Run

sendmail -bt -d0.9 < /dev/null

and in the compiled with section you will see MILTER.

To use the milter interface you need to run a milter application and of
course will have to edit the sendmailmc so that Sendmail knows about the
milter application. For instance see

on how to configure a milter with the example of clamav-milter.
