Some moderators moderate many lists (in some cases, hundreds, but
dozens are not uncommon), and are members of few.  For those people
who operate that way, "auto-membership" would be a significant
annoyance, and in mass-moderation contexts, it would all come at once.
OTOH, people can only read so many lists, and they will join as they
become interested, thus amortizing the scutwork.

With multiple moderators, that would mean that they can all access
each other's subscriptions.  Also the moderator can change her
personal password.
