The point is that CPanel include their own version of Mailman with changes 
that they've not released back to the community, and therefore only other 
CPanel users can really comment authoritatively on CPanel Mailman 
installations as regular users don't know what CPanel have changed.

Maybe it's the same way as in the regular version (i.e. Privacy 
Options/Sender Filters/Default Member Moderation.

No.  This is influenced by the Default Non-member Action item on the same 
page (Privacy/Sender Filters).

I'd check the above first.  The other place it could be is if you've 
activated Emergency List Moderation which I think is on the General 
Options page.
