I figured it out now to tighten things up a bit.
I needed to add

virtual_alias_maps = hash:/usr/local/mailman/data/virtual-mailman

to my postfix main.cf

I thought I had this in there and it was but some how I think I possibly 
fat fingered it I had it commented out. Once I get it like I want and 
not that we need one but I will be writing a step by step how to for 
postfix and mailman on FreeBSD for my benefit.
