Public bug reported:

This is Mailman 2.14, but the bug was also present in ancient releases.

We have a list configured like this:
  archive=No
  archive_private=Yes

The global settings are:
  DEFAULT_ARCHIVE=On
  DEFAULT_ARCHIVE_PRIVATE=0
  ARCHIVE_TO_MBOX=2
  PRIVATE_EXTERNAL_ARCHIVER=No

Even though no html archives are being generated, Mailman still creates
the attachments directory for this list, and saves all attachments in
it.

I've traced the code responsible for this to ArchiverMailbox.__init__(),
invoked by  HyperArchive.processUnixMailbox(). I couldn't find where
Mailman uses the perl-list 'archive' flag. Only the global setting seems
to be considered.
