And the group mismatch error you reported at the start of this thread

  Mailman expected the mail wrapper script to be executed as group
  "mailman", but the system's mail server executed the mail script
  as group "nobody".

Indicating that yes, the wrapper was compiled WITH_MAIL_GID=mailman,
but it should have been compiled WITH_MAIL_GID=nobody.

This has nothing to do with the gid of the files. It has to do only
with the gid with which the MTA invokes the wrapper.
