The admin password gives you access to the admin pages and the admindb
page.  The moderator password gives you access to the admindb page

This means the "list administrator" can make changes to the list's
configuration, and of course can also handle held posts and
subscription requests.  Moderators can only handle holds, but cannot
modify the list's configuration.
