You're correct that this is an issue where manual updates of per-list
aliases are required.

Both Exim and Postfix can be integrated with Mailman so as not to
require this <http://www.list.org/mailman-install/mail-server.html>.
The Postfix integration can be faked to work with Sendmail
and there may be other MTAs that can be integrated to work without
manual aliases, so in many cases, manual aliases are not an issue.
