Assume you want to change '-owner' to '-xyz', and further assume you
have configured Exim more or less according to

Then you have something in your router definition for Mailman that
looks like

    local_part_suffix = -admin     : \
                        -bounces   : -bounces+* : \
                        -confirm   : -confirm+* : \
                        -join      : -leave     : \
                        -owner    : -request   : \
                        -subscribe : -unsubscribe

Here you would just change '-owner' to '-xyz'

The trickier part is in your Mailman transport definition which
contains something like

    command = MM_WRAP \
              '${if def:local_part_suffix \
                    {${sg{$local_part_suffix}{-(\\w+)(\\+.*)?}{\$1}}} \
                    {post}}' \

which needs to be changed to

    command = MM_WRAP \
              '${if def:local_part_suffix \
                    {${sg{${sg{$local_part_suffix}{-xyz}{-owner}}} \
                    {-(\\w+)(\\+.*)?}{\$1}}} \
                    {post}}' \
