Public bug reported:

In mailman/interfaces/mailinglist.py, in the IMailingList interface, there's a display_name property whoose documentation reads:
"This is used in locations such as the message footers and Subject prefix.".
It's actually not true, in the MailingList model class (in mailman/model/mailinglist.py) there's a subject_prefix attribute for this value, and it's the one that Postorius edits.
Thus the interface is incomplete (which is not a big problem) and the documentation is misleading (which is a bigger problem IMHO).
