Capitalization of 'Messieurs'?

Is 'Messieurs' always capitalized or only in certain situations?

This relates to:
Irregular plurals (l'œil/les yeux, mesdames et messieurs) -

Bonjour Richard,

Like all titles, Messieurs is capitalized only when you are talking to the people in question.

So it's capitalized in "Bonjour Messieurs" but not in "les messieurs sont partis."
