If you installed Mailman from source, this is an option to the
configure command. If you are running a package, this is a question
for your packager.

This is more likely the answer for you. In most cases with Postfix,
Mailman-Postfix integration is used. See
<http://www.list.org/mailman-install/node12.html>. In this case, the
Mailman aliases for postfix are in Mailman's data/aliases and
data/aliases.db files. Postfix invokes the wrapper as user:group of
the files in which it finds the alias, so make these files group
