Remember "deferred" is the default.  I bet that selecting that checkbox
justs adds a simple key/value pair like "all=yes" to the cgi request. 
The origin of the "discard all deferred items" (or whatever the wording
is) can likely be found with:

   egrep -i -r -w "all.*defer" /usr/lib/mailman/

or something similar.
