>/path/to/newlist -l en -q $CSHORTNAME-sales owner at domainofmine.net s0m3pass

bin/newlist will create the list in the DEFAULT_URL_HOST domain unless
you specify another domain. In your case DEFAULT_URL_HOST is
localhost.localdomain because of your original work-around.

You can create the list in the correct domain with newlist in 2.1.5
using the arcane syntax

/path/to/newlist -l en -q $CSHORTNAME-sales at www.domainofmine.net
owner at domainofmine.net s0m3pass

(note www.domainofmine.net, not domainofmine.net)

In 2.1.6 this syntax is deprecated in favor of

/path/to/newlist -l en -q -u www.domainofmine.net $CSHORTNAME-sales
owner at domainofmine.net s0m3pass
