Here's my best guess at this point.

1. the lists' archives are public.

2. when you migrated the archives, instead of copying the symlinks to
archives/private/* directories from archives/public, you copied the
actual linked directories.

3. Mailman is archiving just fine in archives/private/* as it should,
but since archives/public/* is now the static structure you migrated,
you don't see any changes.
