It is, if you're looking at the _distributed_ post.  This is the
envelope sender address which Mailman used when distributing the email,
possibly a VERP address if you have this enabled.  What you need to look
at is the headers on the post which the list server _received_, not what
it send out.

No, unless someone subscribed it.
