The only way to not have the list address in a Cc: is to make the list
anonymous or set reply_goes_to_list to This List. Otherwise the Cc: to
the list is put there intentionally to facilitate replying to the list
(via reply-all) since the list address will not be in the normal
From:, To: or Reply-To:

If you don't want this, you'd have to modify

I recognize that this behavior is not necessarily appropriate for
announcement lists, but unless you are willing to make an announcement
list anonymous, that's how it is. The problem is that there is no
'announcement list' setting that would enable the code to determine
that the Cc: is not appropriate.
