Q5017

Question

Can (or will) Exim ever handle a message delivery purely in memory, that is, it is handled without it ever hitting the disk?

Answer

It doesn't, and never will. Accepting and delivering a message are two entirely separate, independent processes, which communicate only by writing/reading the message on the disk.
