What does the above mean?

As you notice, this does nothing.

The second sets the default value for the admin_member_chunksize
attribute of a newly created list.

Recent versions of Mailman allow you to set admin_member_chunksize on
the list's General Options page. If your Mailman doesn't support this,
you need to use bin/withlist or bin/config_list to set it. E.g.,

echo "admin_member_chunksize = 5000" > $f
bin/config_list -i $f LISTNAME
rm $f

(don't try to set it to 0, it will break the Membership List page).
