list-a at example.com or list-b at example.com would never be the "sender" of
the mail from the list so 'whitelisting' it by adding it to your
address book would do nothing.

List-a mail is sent with an envelope from list-a-bounces at example.com
and similarly for list-b so 'whitelisting' that address can help. If
one needs to 'whitelist' the From: address of the post, that is
generally not possible as it is normally the poster's address and that
could be any list member or maybe even a non-member.
