I don't see that any envelope address changes, but in any case, Mailman
doesn't look at envelope recipient. Either the message gets to Mailman
or it doesn't. If it got there, Mailman must have been a recipient.

Mailman does look for the list address in To: or Cc: if the list's
require_explicit_destination is yes.

See MTA = 'Postfix' and related settings. You may or may not need to
hack Mailman/MTA/Postfix.py.

Note that I will very soon be off line for about 12 days and don't have
time now for more detail or to answer your other post. Perhaps others on
the list can provide more if you need it.
