Does SplunkBase Vet apps for Security issues before publishing?

This is a generic question and my apologies if it has already been published somewhere, but I could not glean from my initial google searches.

Given the influx of supply chain attacks through code, am wondering if Splunkbase reviews sourcecode for malicious code before publishing here?

If I read this right, according to the approval criteria (https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunkbase/splunkbase/Splunkbase/Approvalcriteria) it says that "The Splunkbase team evaluates your submitted content to ensure it meets the following..." One being a "check for malware/viruses" which is described as "run scanner software to check for viruses and malware." So though there isn't an abundance of details, it looks like the answer is yes.
