It's not a matter of priority. Unless the list is anonymous, Mailman
doesn't change the From: header in the post at all.

The member's real name is stored if provided and can be reported on
some member lists. Beyond that, it is only provided in a header/footer
replacement variable if the list is personalized and in the To: header
if personalize is Full.
