Where does the newlist command put the appropriate script
that I need to add to my aliases file?

Mailman doesn't add anything to the alias file - that is up to the
administrator of the system to do. The 'newlist' script will spit out a
ready-made bit of text you can cut-and-paste into your alias file, but
still have to actually do that.
