It is not wrong. It is correct for a system crontab, i.e. for
/etc/cron.d/mailman. If the standard crons give the 'mailman command
not found' message and your added entries work, the crontab is
installed somewhere as a user crontab, not a system crontab.

This is not consistent with what you are telling me you see in
/etc/cron.d/mailman and /var/spool/cron so I don't know what's
actually going on. Are you certain /var/spool/cron is empty?

What's in /var/log/cron?
