Yes, it is a real problem. You have three choices:

1) Ignore the "unrecognized bounce" mail.

2) Set bounce_unrecognized_goes_to_list_owner to No.

3) Turn off bounce processing all together.

Blocking mail to the -bounces address (or removing the alias) will have
the same effect as 3).

If you don't mind not seeing real unrecognized bounces, 2) is the best
