There is an unsubscribe_policy variable for each list (set to the  
value of DEFAULT_UNSUBSCRIBE_POLICY in your mm_cfg.py/Defaults.py),  
but as the comments in Defaults.py explain it only controls whether  
or not administrative approval is necessary to allow the  
unsubscription to be honored.

There is no setting called ALLOW_OPEN_UNSUBSCRIBE.

If you send your member password when you send the unsubscribe  
command, there should be no confirmation step.

unsubscribe mypasswd

(You could modify Mailman/Commands/cmd_unsubscribe.py if you wanted  
to allow unverified unsubscriptions from your list by mail.)
