I am not familiar with the opensuse distribution packaging, but, as
has been discussed here in the past, the Debian/Ubuntu packaging
removes pythonlib, as there once was a problem where a customer had
a symbolic link to pythonlib, and the Debian fix (incorrect) was to
remove pythonlib.  That is one reason why I build my own package for
Mailman on Ubuntu.  From a debian/rules file:

     rmdir debian/$(package)/var/lib/mailman/pythonlib
