There are three kinds of mutators (and maps)
Blacklisted
Greylisted
Whitelisted

By default, a mutator is blacklisted (or not listed at all) which means perks are disabled and so are achievements.
Authors can request to make their mutators greylisted so Perks work, but you can't make progress on it. Achievements seems to be possible, not sure (check the thread for it)
Whitelisted means it's fine to use and you can play on it as usual.

The default mutators are all blacklisted (or greylisted, not sure) and most maps are blacklisted.

there's no blacklist, either greylist (perk enabled but no leveling), or whitelist (perk enabled with leveling). perks are disabled by default, until they get submitted and approved for white/grey.

greylist used to be the default, and we used to be able to level on official mutators, this got changed after too many exploits.

just use the perk selector mod and set it to your current level, then you can practice on any maps/mods you want, with whatever perks you choose.

If I want to solo a map of all fleshpounders to work on my Firebug damage, can I do it? Or will it not count to leveling up that perk?

No, you can lit em up all day long and you won't get a single EXP point, in fact Grinding perks is exactly the reason why tripwire made it so you can't level perks with said only specimen Mutators.

it wasn't really the grinding aspect, that's kind of what they were made for. they never had a problem with that, until people were using cvars to exploit these modes, so that you could do it without taking damage, or map glitches to grind without being in any real danger. they never would've been taken off the list if not for so much abuse.
