I assume you're sure you're seeing a message from the list and not a
direct Cc:

I can't see how this would affect prefixing as long as the message
processing is otherwise normal.

This is how the user's MUA or webmail or whatever identified itself. It
should not be significant as long as the receiver accepted the mail.

This is not a problem either. This is generated by the user's MUA and
is not required to be a domain name. Look at the Message-ID: in this
mail from me. It will be of the form
<PC17302005020512231506405ab4b0af at msapiro> with differences just left
of the @. The "msapiro" to the right of the @ looks like a user name
(actually it's a machine name), and it's never been a problem.
