It sounds like you're using a Red Hat or Fedora packaged mailman. In
those distros, mailman is patched to try and put the files in
locations more in line with the FHS (for distro consistency and
SELinux integration). This can be confusing if you're following the
standard mailman docs or asking for help here.
You can see a mapping of the standard locations to the changed
locations in the INSTALL.REDHAT file. That way you can translate
the advice you'll get here into what you need for your system.
For the benefit of others, that file is available in the Fedora cvs
