Just confirming, groups themselves don't receive mouse messages, right?

I was experimenting with groups, and it appears the group itself
doesn't directly receive mouseEnter, mouseMove, etc.

If mouse messages are sent to an object in the group, and the object's
script doesn't handle the messages, the messages pass to the group.
But if the pointer is over an area of the group but not over any
control in the group, then even if the group is opaque, etc., no
messages are delivered to the group. Is that correct?

Is there a way to make it so that groups themselves can receive
messages directly?
