When you change a member's address in this way, a confirmation request
is sent to the new address, and the address is not changed until the
user confirms.

Even as list admin, you cannot change a member's address from the web
without user confirmation.

The way to change a member's address without confirmation is via the
Mailman command line tool bin/clone_member.
