What is not happening that you think should be happening?  I believe
what should occur is this - after the bounce_score reaches 2.0,
the subscriber is set to NOMAIL.  Then Mailman will send two
"Your subscription is NOMAIL" warning messages to the subscriber.
You have

     bounce_you_are_disabled_warnings_interval = 5

so there will be an additional 10 days (2 warning messages sent to the
subscriber) delay.  If there is no reply to the second warning message,
then finally the e-mail address will be unsubscribed from the list.
Look at the list membership and see if the e-mail address in question
has been set to NOMAIL [B].  I do not know the interval between the
bounce_score reaching 2.0 and the sending of the first warning
