Perhaps the attachment was removed by Mailman's content filtering.

I can easily reproduce this if the large MIME part in the message is a
Content-Type that will be removed by Mailman's content filtering.

If not, and if by "activate scrubbing" you mean set scrub_nondigest to
Yes, then it should work as you expect and the large MIME part should be
removed and replaced by a URL in both the archive and in the post
delivered to the list.

Note that non text/plain MIME parts that pass content filtering are
always stored aside and replaced by links in the plain format digest and
the pipermail archive regardless of the setting of scrub_nondigest.

So the underlying question is what was the MIME Content-Type of the
large message part and what are your list's content filtering settings?
