Some are listed on the pages to which you can apply edits (see, for
instance, mailman/admin/<listname>/?VARHELP=nondigest/msg_footer).

"a subscriber's email address" appears in no substitute list, because that would
imply, as has been discussed to death here, that every message was custom 
per subscriber, which destroys the economies of scale involved in a mailing list.
If you want to do something like "send a mail to every subscriber", it's relatively
easy to make a shell script that does that using bin/list_members to get the
member names (I do this every so often to remind 'disabled' users to re-enable
themselves if their mailbox is now empty again).
