This is wrong. You need to add hash:/usr/local/mailman/data/aliases to
alias_maps, not to virtual_alias_maps. Probably something like

alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases, hash:/usr/local/mailman/data/aliases

Then you need

virtual_alias_maps =

and if it isn't already there, you need

POSTFIX_STYLE_VIRTUAL_DOMAINS = ['mail.mydomain.org']

in mm_cfg.py, and if that wasn't already there, you need to run
Mailman's bin/genaliases to create the virtual-mailman* files.
