This is OK, but it is not needed and shouldn't be referenced because
the list domain is now local (in mydestination). You can/should remove
the POSTFIX_STYLE_VIRTUAL_DOMAINS entry from mm_cfg.py and the
/var/lib/mailman/data/virtual-mailman* files. These should not be
referenced in main.cf.

Then I suspect you have Mailman list aliases in some other file owned
by root such as /etc/aliases. You need to remove any list aliases from
all files except /var/lib/mailman/data/aliases*
