No it is not a bug. It appears that you do not have a Nameoflist-owner
alias in your MTA to pipe mail to that address to

 mailman/mail/mailman owner Nameoflist

You need to pipe mail to all 9 of the -admin, -bounces, -confirm,
-join, -leave, -owner, -request, -subscribe and -unsubscribe addresses
back to mailman. Mailman sends moderator requests to the
Nameoflist-owner address and when it receives it there, it sends it to
the actual owners.

The problem is your MTA is not properly set up to deliver mail to the
-owner address to Mailman.
