[Mailman-Users] use of Python strings in template files

I have posted this question to the list before, but have never resolved it.
I am looking at the files in the template directory, specifically
newlist.txt and verify.txt. The newlist file is the information sent to
list owners when the list is set up. The verify file is the information
sent to confirm an email address when a person subscribes to a list that
I want to make some changes to this information, which affects all
lists. I can make some changes, but some don't seem to work. The most
significant is the Python strings that parse information into links,
specifically %(listinfo_url)s and %(emailaddr)s . If I insert
%(emailaddr)s into the newlist.txt file, when I generate a new list,
the exact text %(emailaddr)s shows in the message and it doesn't render
it as newlist at wherever.com. If I insert into the verify.txt file, I get
the same result. My confusion comes in when I see that these strings are
used successfully in other template files.
What gives? Is there something contextual about the use of these strings
that makes them unuseable in other templates?
