The data/virtual-mailman file is only updated by Mailman if you have

MTA = 'Postfix'

and have specified

POSTFIX_STYLE_VIRTUAL_DOMAINS = ['example.com', ...]

in mm_cfg.py. It is intended only for Postfix, not Exim.

The issue is your use of

>>   condition = ${lookup{$local_part@$domain}lsearch{MAILMAN_HOME/data/virtual-mailman}{1}{0}}

in your mailman router in Exim.  Presumably this comes from
"README.Debian.Exim4", but this README apparently comes from Debian.
It doesn't come from the Mailman project.

for our recommendations.
