Anything you do which accesses a list's config.pck via 
Mailman/MailList.py (which is pretty much any Mailman process other than 
bin/dumpdb) will test if Mailman.Version.DATA_FILE_VERSION is greater 
than the list's data_version and if so, will run 
Mailman.versions.Update() to update the list configuration, add new 
attributes, etc.

Clearly this is not happening in your case because the from_is_list 
attribute is not being added.

Does your Mailman/versions.py contain

     PreferStored('author_is_list', 'from_is_list',

at lines 317,318?
