If their delivery is disabled by bounce and not for some other reason,
and they are not being removed, the most likely explanation is
cron/disabled is not being run.

If they are not getting delivery disabled, check Mailman's 'bounce' log.
Also check the Postfix logs to see if bounces are returned and where
they are delivered.
