The fact that a bouncing address happens to be the address of an Owner
or Moderator is not relevant to Mailman's bounce processing. See

As far as the notices of new subscribers and the disabling is
concerned, it seems that mailman can't successfully mail to the owner
address or to the matching member address. What does the copy of the
bounce in the disable notification say? And where do you receive it?
