Yes, I added the aliases:

## cplist mailing list
cplist:              "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman post cplist"
cplist-admin:        "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman admin cplist"
cplist-bounces:      "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman bounces cplist"
cplist-confirm:      "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman confirm cplist"
cplist-join:         "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman join cplist"
cplist-leave:        "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman leave cplist"
cplist-owner:        "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman owner cplist"
cplist-request:      "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman request cplist"
cplist-subscribe:    "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman subscribe cplist"
cplist-unsubscribe:  "|/usr/local/mailman/mail/mailman unsubscribe cplist"

And they both have the same from structure, they come from:
From: list-bounces at example.com [mailto:list-bounces at example.com] On 
Behalf Of list-request at example.com
