My guess is you have either

MTA= 'Postfix'


MTA = None

in mm_cfg.py. The former is for Mailman/Postfix integration and causes
Mailman to write the aliases to Mailman's data/aliases file and run
postalias to update data/aliases.db which should be referenced in
Postfix's alias_maps so it's all automagic

The latter is for MTAs like Exim that don't need aliases.
