You could also pretend you rejected the e-mail to the SMTP client, but actually still deliver to the Junk mail folder.

not easily, because when you reject the mail to the SMTP sender, it's almost always done before the message itself gets delivered to you.

You can still reject a message in the SMTP dialog after having seen the body.

However, I don't see the point of rejecting a message and filing it to the spam folder at the same time. The point of the exercise is to not need a spam folder in the first place, by simply refusing outright to accept mail that would otherwise go in the spam folder.

In case a filter wants to reject it but an admin or user wants to double check.
