Maybe it's in /var/mailman. It could be anywhere depending on how
Mailman was installed. Try running

find / -name mailman

as root to locate the directory where the installed mailman software is.

Does the mailman crontab that runs the Mailman cron jobs run them as
user 'mailman'?

What are the permissions on the /home/mailman/lists/mailman/ directory
(presumably /home/mailman/lists/ is OK or lists wouldn't work)? They
are usually

drwxrwsr-x   2 root    mailman
