Which logs? Mailman's, presumably.

Empty logs (on a new install) make me think to qrunner not running: is
it? (check, maybe with ps, start with bin/mailmanctl)

Is archiving for the lists switched on? Are messages being delivered
to the archives?

How do you see "the mails being sent"?

I'd check MTA config, MTA logs, then working out where (if) messages
destined to Mailman were (not) going.
