The user can do whatever they want, or whatever their software
allows them to do. It sounds like some misconfigured software is
setting them up to reply to listname-bounce instead of listname, but
short of setting a reply-to header (see
for why this is strongly discouraged), I don't think you're going to
be able to "fix" a user problem by making changes on the server.
In short, if a patient goes to the doctor and complains that it
hurts when they do a certain thing in a certain way, it is not at all
unusual for the doctor to inform them to stop doing that thing in
