That's how it should work for everyone.

Then, assuming your re-analysis of the numbers is correct and Mailman
is not sending to him, there is something about his post as received
by Mailman which causes this. The most obvious thing would be that
somehow his own e-mail address is in the To: or Cc: (how it gets there
is another question).

Another possibility might be topics, but I'm guessing your list doesn't
have topics defined or you would have looked at this.

I suggest you carefully look at ALL the headers in his post(s) vs.
yours to try to see if you can identify any suspicious differences.

You might also run bin/dumpdb on the list's config.pck file and see if
there's anything there that is different for him than for others.
