If you don't want automated bounce processing, but you want the list
admin to see the bounces, you need to change the

listname-bounces: "|/path/to/mailman/mail/mailman bounces listname"

alias to either go to a specific address or to be

listname-bounces: "|/path/to/mailman/mail/mailman owner listname"

so that bounces are treated as mail to the owner.

If your MTA delivers Mailman mail programmatically you need to change
that process in an equivalent way or override it with an alias.
