I think the OP means something like an umbrella list and wants to know
when a message is in the archive for a sub-list, was the original post
addressed to the sub-list or to the umbrella list.

I agree with the above.

Of course, if all the lists involved have archives, you can deduce to
which list a post was addressed by seeing which archives it is and
isn't in, but this is probably more cumbersome than you want.
