Would you care to tell us what MTA you are using and maybe showing us the
headers of an example message?

My  first guess  is that  your  mailing lists  are  local and  that all  the
receipients are in the same domain, so they all show up in the same RCPT TO,
whereas  when  you get  a  message  from  mailman-users,  you are  the  only
subscribe from your domain, hence the only one in that header.
