No. You want to remove this alias altogether so that the 10 aliases for
mailman, mailman-admin, etc. which are in Mailman's data/aliases will
be effective and not preempted by the /etc/aliases alias.

Or, I think you could just reorder alias_maps in your Postfix main.cf
to put the mailman aliases first.

No. DEFAULT_URL_HOST and DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST should be set for the
actual primary user visible web and email domains for your Mailman so
you did the right thing to change them.
