Any settings in mm_cfg.py override the identical setting in
Defaults.py. So, if POSTFIX_STYLE_VIRTUAL_DOMAINS is unset in
Defaults.py (or even set to 'foobarmonkey', for whatever reason), any
setting (correct, valid, or otherwise) of
POSTFIX_STYLE_VIRTUAL_DOMAINS in mm_cfg.py will be used, instead.

The rule of thumb is that you should never alter Defaults.py, since
this file can (and probably will) be overwritten during an upgrade of
Mailman. mm_cfg.py, however, will NOT be overwritten by Mailman's
installation scripts, so it's safe to put configuration data there.
