This looks correct assuming that the particular alias in question came
from the above aliases file and not from /etc/aliases* or some other
file owned by root.

You have it backwards. The wrapper already expected group 'list'. You
would have had to specify --with-mail-gid=root to fix the above

It doesn't look like SETGID is set. It should be -rwxr-sr-x.
