Mailman is designed to send all mail with envelope from
LISTNAME-bounces at ... so that Mailman can process bounces.

If you prefer that all bounces be processed manually by the list owner,
and you control the MTA that delivers to Mailman, you could arrange
aliases or whatever so that mail to -bounces addresses is delivered as
if addressed to -owner.

If you want only some bounces to be handled manually by the list owner,
you would have to modify the source code that generates those messages.
