It is generated on the fly (by Mailman/Cgi/listinfo.py) based on a

The base templates for a given language are in the
templates/<language>/ directory. See,
for information on where to put edited templates in general to be used
for a specific list, domain or sitewide.
In the case of the listinfo template, a list specific template can be
created/edited by following the "Edit the public ..." link under
"Other Administrative Activities" on any of the list's admin pages and
then selecting "General list information page".

Mail to any of the list(-*) addresses is piped by the incoming MTA to
the mail/mailman wrapper which invokes a script in the scripts/
directory which puts the message in one of the queues. The queues are
processed by qrunners started by bin/mailmanctl. The message flow is
diagrammed in the Mailman/Queue/IncomingRunner.py module.
The web interface (except public archives which are accessed directly)
invokes wrappers in Mailman's cgi-bin directory which in turn invoke
scripts in Mailman/Cgi/ to do the work.
There's no PLM (Program Logic Manual) per se for Mailman.
