Either there is no alias for mailman or postfix is identifying mailman with the user "mailman" before processing aliases. I though postfix precesses aliases first, however.

Here is the alias file:

# This file is generated by Mailman, and is kept in sync with the
# binary hash file aliases.db.  YOU SHOULD NOT MANUALLY EDIT THIS FILE
# unless you know what you're doing, and can keep the two files properly
# in sync.  If you screw it up, you're on your own.

# The ultimate loop stopper address
mailman-loop: /usr/local/mailman/data/owner-bounces.mbox
