There are two much easier ways to get this information:

1) read the documentation (/usr/share/doc/mailman-*/INSTALL.REDHAT)

2) rpm -ql mailman (-ql prints a package file list)

The directory change was dictated by the need to integrate with the
SELinux security policy. This is a positive technology advancement.

Adhering to the FHS (Filesystem Hierarchy Standard) is a stated goal and
appreciated by many.

Most people prefer distributions that integrate packages into a coherent
system that follow established rules.

Individual package defaults are not a standard.
