No.  New lists will take the values you specify in Mailman/Defaults.py.
But as I mentioned just a couple of days ago, you can over-ride any of
the settings in Defaults.py with your Mailman/mm_cfg.py file.  Read
Defaults.py to find the variable names and their meanings, and then
set them at the end of your mm_cfg.py to suit your site.  (That technique
should allow your site specific customizations to persist through mailman
version updates.)
