The list has attributes 'owner' and 'moderator', each of which is a
list of zero or more addresses, although having zero addresses in
'owner' is not a good idea.

Most owner notifications are actually sent to LISTNAME-owner which in
turn is resent to all the owner AND moderator addresses.

Some notices use the Message.OwnerNotification class directly which has
the ability to exclude moderators, but I think the only notice that
goes to owners only and not moderators is the forward of an
unrecognized bounce.

So the answer is if bounce_unrecognized_goes_to_list_owner is Yes,
those notices go only to the 'owner' addresses and not to 'moderator'
addresses, but the bounce_notify_owner_on_disable notices and the
bounce_notify_owner_on_removal notices go to both 'owner' and
'moderator' addresses and changing this would require source code

Granted, the terminology, documentation and results are not consistent,
but that's the way it works.
