Is there a mean of blocking SMS within the modem manager?

I think this is considered out-of-scope -- ModemManager expects that
whatever higher-level program displaying SMS to the user upon receipt would
take care of functionality like blocking a number. To my understanding
ModemManager does not keep persistent state that is e.g. configurable by
the user over D-Bus, and it's a design goal not to have such state and to
leave "policy" decisions to other programs.
