Not without running a different copy of Mailman for the different hosts.

DEFAULT_URL_PATTERN is used both at list creation time to create the
list's web_page_url attribute and it is also used by a utility
function that returns various URLs when the function is called without
a web_page_url argument.

Were it not for the second usage, you could simply set (or default)

DEFAULT_URL_PATTERN = 'http://%s/mailman/'

and then use bin/withlist or bin/config_list to set web_page_url to
'https://example.com/mailman/' for the lists in the example.com
domain. However, because of the second usage of DEFAULT_URL_PATTERN,
this will only be partially (and not very) effective.
