Not Mailman, but yes, that's correct. The sender sent one message with
multiple lists as recipients, thus there was only one message-id. The
incoming MTA delivered the message to each of the Mailman list
recipients, and each delivered message was the same message with the
same message-id and this is reflected in the post log entries.

In this case, you will be able ultimately to determine the final
recipients and dispositions from the Postfix log, you won't know which
recipient belongs to which list(s).
