Yes, backing up /home/mailman/lists/.. will save list configurations and
membership information.  The key file for any list is: config.db

If you want a text copy of each list and its configuration you can use:

/home/mailman/bin/dumpdb -o - /home/mailman/lists/<listname>/config.db 

Dumpdb dumps out the config.db database and can also be used to upload
edited text directly into a database.
