Honestly I doubt that. When I (docomo) send an email with an image
then it is a standard MIME mail. 100% standard. When I create a
deco-mail then it is again standard MIME HTML mail. There is no MMS
for those phones. Softbank might use it, because from "old" times when
they were j-phone/vodafone. But the others for 100% sure don't.

I guess DoCoMo is using i-Mode

And even softbank sends normal mails. deco-mail is the same as for
docomo and when I send an image from softbank to docomo or vica versa
it is just pure mail.

MMS uses MIME.

The Softbank MMS gateway will convert to and from email.

The phone sends and receives MMS which is converted to emails by the message centre. To external users it looks like email.

I don't know how the old-style handsets do it but this works with 3G Softbank. It's branded "email" and not "MMS" but it uses MMS.
