Where is that documented?

Not at all.  DEFAULT_HOST_NAME is the default host name that a list gets when 
it's created.  If DEFAULT_HOST_NAME overrode the list option, then you could 
never have virtual domain list hosting at all.  DEFAULT_HOST_NAME is not a 
systemwide default for mailman, regardless of what you declare it to be in an 
email.  If you want it to be so, modify the code yourself.
