Broadcasts and (B)SSIDs

Are wireless clients required to process all broadcast/multicast frames received, regardless of whether the SSID/BSSID is the one to which it is associated? Wired VLAN isolation aside, does a STA benefit in any way from being on a separate SSID with regard to broadcast/multicast frames over the RF?

Thanks for your input,

I think VLANs does terminate or in other words stop broadcasts from going through different VLANs and hence clients belonging to different VLANS.

Thanks,

I'm referring to the wireless side: does SSID separation (through association to a different APs BSSID MAC) offer any logical partitioning from broadcasts/multicasts?.
