Thanks Mark. I found the entry at: 

However, it is here and there on the internet in what are probably mirrors
or copies of the Mailman FAQ. I imagine that it was posted at once point,
and then later the correct version was published. 

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. 

Best Regards,

Where in the FAQ did you find the above? I don't see it, and more
importantly, it is not correct.

The relevant FAQ article is 3.15 at

Once you have set OWNERS_CAN_ENABLE_PERSONALIZATION per the above FAQ 3.15,
the personalize help on the Non-digest options page will tell you what
additional substitutions are available in list headers and footers.
