I'm not sure what scenario you're envisioning here, but any mail sent
to the listname-bounces address will be processed as a bounce. Usually
this results in an 'unrecognized bounce' which may be reported to the
list owner depending on bounce processing settings. I'm not sure, but
in some cases, it may be actually registered as a bounce for the
person who sent it.

If you're not seeing mail from this list as being "From:
mailman-users-bounces+memmott=hitcatcher.com at python.org on behalf of
the_actual_address_in_From:", maybe it has to do with the VERPed
address or maybe you've stumbled on the magic way to turn this off in
Outlook. If the latter, we'd like to know.
