[Mailman-Users] SMTP_MAX_RCPT not working?

We have set MaxRecipientsPerMessage=5 in sendmail.cf on our servers to 
counteract some spammers delivering for dozens of users. The side effect 
of this is that when sending via mailman to our own clients it takes quite 
a while because Mailman tries to send to more recipients with each 
envelope and retries every 15 minutes or so with the ones that were 
So I set SMTP_MAX_RCPT = 5 in mm_cfg.py. However, I still see the same 
problem which means that Mailman seems to not obey this setting. I changed 
this several weeks ago and all Mailman runners have surely been restarted 
since then. There's also a .pyc file of the same time and date.
Is this a bug or do I misinterpret this setting? I'm using 2.1.5.
