Assuming /usr/lib/mailman is your installation directory,
/usr/lib/mailman/cron has the actual scripts and a crontab.in which is
meant as the default to install.
Depending on how your Mailman was installed, the actual crontab may be
mailman's crontab (usually, /var/spool/cron/mailman) which can be
crontab -u mailman -l
or if your crontab doesn't have a -u option
su - mailman
Or, the crontab may be in a subdirectory of /etc/cron.d in which case
it has to be listed or edited directly.

As I said above, this is just the default to install. The one in this
directory is not actually used.
