The variable name in the code is 'anonymous_list', and the relevant
focus is in Mailman/MailList.py .  There's a section where the setting
is defined, and another setting in the Post() method where it is used.
A common simple trick for investigating the setting would be to make
calls to self.LogMsg(), e.g. self.LogMsg("debug", "anonymous_list: %s",
