Greg Stein was on the mark on most of the items, but i think he may have
been mistaken on one of them.  He wrote:

If i understand the question, i think it does.  Mailman does something
it calls "smart matching" for addresses comparisons when checking for
membership and metoo matches, etc.  This  involves accepting as matches
addresses that agree in the account name and all but the most qualified
component of the host name part - the "machine name directly following
the @".  Actually, if i recall correctly, the rules are a bit more
elaborate than that, but not much...
