I understood that, but what else happens? What response do you get from
the web server when you go to the mailman/confirm/$LISTNAME/$TOKEN uri?

When you reply to the mail, do you get a "results of your email
commands" mail in reply and if so, what does it say.?

Do other confirmations, e.g. subscription requests, work?

It's possible, but if Debian's package were broken in this way, I think
I would have heard from more than just you?
