My belief is that it is based on the people listed as subscribers.  However,
I have found that when I did a mass subscribe to a list (in b6 or B7 can't
fully remember) and set the check box to not send notification messages,
the users that I added were created without passwords.  Then when they
tried to send a message to the list set for subscriber only posting, their
message was held for approval.  Setting the passwords for the users seems
to have fixed this.
