OK, you should NEVER edit Defaults.py

You put any overrides of any default values in mm_cfg.py

The reason for this is that Defaults.py gets overwritten on an 
upgrade of the mailman code while mm_cfg.py does not.

Unfortunately, I don't know enough about the virtual host stuff to 
help you as I don't use it myself.

That is default_member_moderation setting on the Privacy Options -> 
Sender Filters page.

You will also want to look at the settings for 
member_moderation_action and member_moderation_notice while you are 
there to set them as appropriate.

It means that the list address or an acceptable alias did not appear 
in the To: or CC: headers of the e-mail. You will get this if you 
BCC: a list. You can turn this off if you like if you set 
require_explicit_destination to NO on the Privacy Options -> 
Recipient filters page.
