The list attribute that controls this is admin_member_chunksize which
is set from DEFAULT_ADMIN_MEMBER_CHUNKSIZE when the list is created.

It appears that bin/config_list is unaware of this attribute and there
is also no way to set it through the list admin gui. I.e. the list's
value for this attribute is whatever DEFAULT_ADMIN_MEMBER_CHUNKSIZE
was when the list was created. After that, it seems you need to use
bin/withlist to change it.
