It should work. The first bounce should disable delivery by bounce. You
can also set bounce_score_threshold to 0, but .1 should do the same thing.

Is bounce_processing set to Yes for the list? Are all the notifications
set to Yes?

What do you see in the MTA logs for mail which bounces?

Ultimate unsubscription, assuming bounce_you_are_disabled_warnings is
greater than 0 depends on cron/disabled, but if delivery is not being
disabled by bounce, then removal won't occur.
