I suspect that it is aimed at users with the special MFT in a static setup which may be running all day and yes, to get rid of odours etc.

Just curious: does the HEPA filter reduce/remove any fumes or odors?

Just curious: does the HEPA filter reduce/remove any fumes or odors?

The HEPA standard/criteria is for particulates of a particular size. Odours and fumes are extremely fine and are unlikely to be removed by a HEPA device. Chemical filters, often using charcoal or chemicals/catalysts designed for the particular hazard, would be needed to remove or reduce odours and fumes.
