Look in Mailman's vette log and find all the entries relevant to this
user's post. If after that, you still don't know what's happening,
post the vette log messages here,

If the user is a list member, moderated or not, putting the user's
address in any of *_these_nonmembers is irrelevant because those apply
only to addresses which aren't list members.

The file is lists/LISTNAME/config.pck. You can look at it with
bin/dumpdb, but I guarantee that you won't find anything there that
contradicts what the list's admin Membership List shows you. The mod
bit is the 2^7 (128) bit in the user's value in the user_options
