[Mailman-Users] Is mailman really this clever?

Does mailman, as it's sending out list mail, check to see whether someone 
it's about to send a copy to is also mentioned in the cc: field, and then 
not send it to avoid duplicates?  I run a small mailman installation on a 
home server, and just received only one copy of a message that was sent 
both to a list I'm on and cc'd to me.  Looking through the MTA's logs, I 
see the message going out to each of the recipients except me.

If this is really the way it works, that's cool...
