Is this with or without DMARC Munge From or Wrap Message?

I've just tested most combinations, and they all include a Reply-To:
header with the list posting address. With Munge From and Wrap Message,
the Reply-To: also has the original From: address in it, but it's always

Also, are you looking at a raw message or what a mail client displays?
I've seen issues with some versions of Apple Mail and perhaps other
clients where for "some" messages, the Reply-To: is not displayed or
honored even though it's there.

I know reply_goes_to_list is This List, but what are the exact settings
for from_is_list, anonymous_list and first_strip_reply_to when you see this?
