Light bulb moment!  These are indeed aliases that Proton Mail provides.
Now I can visualize how this can be done.  Proton has both a fairly
full-featured interactive filter generation ability (up to 100 active
filters on the paid plan) and the sieve capability, too.  I had not
heard of sieve previously.  Thanks for that.

And I thought from the get-go that the hooks you mention later would be
needed.  I think I now have a viable game plan thanks to your help!

Out of curiosity how do you effectively search through your server-side
mails from within NeoMutt?

At the core, the American citizen soldiers knew the difference between
right and wrong, and they didn't want to live in a world in which wrong
prevailed.  So they fought, and won, and we, all of us, living and yet
to be born, must be forever profoundly grateful.
