Yes.  I have discussed this on the Postfix-users mailing list during the
past week, and it sounds as if that will be corrected at some time.
Until it is changed in Postfix, it can be a problem if a local address
bounces, because Mailman will probably not be able to determine which
subscriber it was that bounced - but fortunately, local addresses do not
bounce very often.
