And did you run genaliases?

No. You do not want any list addresses and domains in Dovecot.

With the above, all your lists will be mapped to the lists.example2.org
domain which must be local.

lists.example2.org needs to be in my_destination in main.cf and not in
virtual_alias_domains or in POSTFIX_STYLE_VIRTUAL_DOMAINS. All the
other list email domains need to be in both virtual_alias_domains and
POSTFIX_STYLE_VIRTUAL_DOMAINS, and data/virtual-mailman needs to be
referenced in virtual_alias_maps.
