There are two separate things.
Aliases of the form
listname: "|/var/lib/mailman/mail/mailman post listname"
which map a local address such as 'listname' to a pipe command used to
deliver that mail to Mailman (these have ':' following the local
and virtual host mappings of the form
name at example.com localname
a virtual address to a local name (local address). These do not have a
colon and do not go in an alias file. They go in some kind of virtual
host mapping file (for sendmail, this may be /etc/mail/virtusertable).
This is where you would put your
listname at example.com listname
listname-admin at example.com listname-admin
entries, but note that these are only required if example.com is a
virtual host. If example.com is the MTA's primary local host, these
are not needed since listname at example.com is already delivered to the
local 'listname' address if possible.
Aside, it may be easier to test addresses with sendmail -bt than with
