This is not Mailman. It is something in the process that delivers mail
to Mailman. Whether the address foo-owner at example.com is in a To: or a
Cc: or no header at all, the envelope should be addressed to
foo-owner at example.com and the message ultimately piped to

  /path/to/mailman/mail/mailman owner foo

Somehow, your process is piping it to

  /path/to/mailman/mail/mailman post foo

instead if foo-owner at example.com is in a Cc:
