I don't discount this possibility, but the rejections just go back to
the Mailman server and the list, and reports of the rejections go to the
people publishing the DMARC p=reject policy for their domain. I don't
see how any of this winds up being delivered to some third party's spam
trap address.

I.e., the people (or bots) at Yahoo receiving reports of your DMARC
failures might decide to take some action against your server, but that
would be Yahoo blacklisting you for excessive DMARC failures
"impersonating" their domain. It wouldn't be maps saying you're sending
mail to their spam traps.
