This FAQ is for Mailman 2.0.x. See

Note that this redirect is just so you can continue to access the list
via the old name after you've renamed it and the old name no longer
exists as an actual list.

genaliases is only for the MTA, it has nothing to do with the web

Then you've successfully removed the redirect from Apache.

No, but your browser or some proxy might remember them. Try accessing
from a different machine or browser that hadn't accessed the page with
the redirect in effect.
