Is that a singular reminder that is requested and not a periodic one (if monthly
reminders are set off)?

Granted, it could be more clear, but if you read the description of
"Get password reminder email for this list?" on the options page, it
says the user can turn off reminders by selecting No. It does not say
the the user can get reminders if the list setting is off.

In fact, if the list is set to not send reminders, the list is not
included in reminders regardless of any list member's setting.

Also, A site can disable monthly reminders all together by removing the
cron/mailpasswds entry from Mailman's crontab.

However, none of this prevents a user from requesting a reminder from
the options login page.
