Is your Mailman/Handlers/Decorate.py unmodified?
What is happening is we are attempting to convert the footer which is
the result of interpolating the %(...)s replacements into msg_footer
into a unicode string, but it is already a unicode string.
It is unclear to me how this is happening.
What do you see as the value of msg_footer from the output of
bin/config_list -o - listname | grep -A10 msg_footer
Does it begin with u""" ?
