created or modified via the command-line on the server where Mailman

Yes, it does. I do it all the time on many of the mailing lists
I'm on, where I'm also one of the admins for the list, and where I'm
also one of the site admins. As site admin, I use this feature

See above. There is one and only one Site Admin password, and
there is no provision for splitting out parts of that functionality
to anyone else.
