That setting affects only how addresses are displayed on the list's
roster web page.

That will add a Reply-To: header (or add to an existing Reply-To: if
first_strip_reply_to is No) with the list posting address.

Is that from clicking the down arrow next to "Reply" in the gmail
message display window and selecting "show original"? If not, what is
the From: header when you do that?

If so, then Postfix is rewriting the From: header. "Why" is a Postfix
question. If we can help with that, we'd at least need to see the output
from "postconf -n", but I would recommend getting rid of
postfix-to-mailman.py and just using standard Mailman/Postfix integration.
