That's the location for the as-shipped default templates, which will
get over-written on the next re-install.

FAQ 4.48 says you should install these under
domain-specific customized templates that are on a system supporting
multiple domains), or /usr/local/mailman/templates/site/<language>
(for customized templates that would be common to all domains served
by a given system).

If you follow the layout recommended by FAQ 4.48, that should no
longer be a problem.
