I don't think so, unless you really don't want it to verify sender

The date and time from the above messages indicate they refer to a
password reminders.

If VIRTUAL_HOSTS_OVERVIEW is on, password reminders are collected for
all users and lists and sent once for each user in lists in each
virtual domain, and they are sent from the site list bounce address
(mailman-bounces) @ the domain they come from. Otherwise, they are
sent from the site list bounces address @DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST.

So in your case, either VIRTUAL_HOSTS_OVERVIEW is off and
DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST is localhost.localdomain in mm_cfg.py/Defaults.py
or VIRTUAL_HOSTS_OVERVIEW is on and you have at least one list with
members and with host_name = 'localhost.localdomain'.
