That's what I would have expected given that you created the list
appropriately in the first place.

This is good.

Here it makes a difference if you are using VERP like delivery or not.
With VERP, msg_return-path, msg_sender and msg_errors-to will be as in
the incoming message. Without VERP, msg_sender and msg_errors-to will
be as set by Mailman for the outgoing message. See the 'MAS' comment
about 30 lines into SMTPDirect.process() for why.

I don't think the problem is in Mailman. I think your incoming MTA is
rewriting these headers in the inbound message. FAQ 6.22
although written with outgoing messages in mind, may provide some
insight to this.
