We need more information to be definitive, but I'm guessing this has
something to do with the list's bounce processing and some kind of
autoresponse from the user(s)

What are the list's bounce processing settings? I'm guessing maybe

bounce_processing = Yes
bounce_score_threshold <= 1.0
bounce_you_are_disabled_warnings = 0

resulting in immediate removal on the first bounce.

What's in Mailman's 'subscribe' and 'bounce' logs. If this is a hosted
server, you'll have to ask the hosting service for help with this.

What is in the MTA logs regarding messages to and from Mailman during
this time?

What Mailman version is this?
