No, there is no such setting.

Postfix should queue everything it can't deliver to Mailman and refuse to
accept any more mail if it's own local queues are full, and the remote end
should then queue the messages.  Anything that can be delivered to Mailman
while the Mailman queue runners are shut down will be put into a Mailman
queue, to be processed once Mailman comes back up.

There's queues all over the place.
