Mailman 2 can't.  Mailman 3 is able to do it, but I'm not sure what
the state of the art on implementing this conveniently for list owers

Nope.  Mailman core doesn't have the sequence number as used in the
archive (it is not necessarily the same as the one that would be put
in the Subject header).  It's the province of the archiver, which is a
separate progrom.  So Mailman has no idea what the sequence number is.
What Mailman 3 provides is a way for the archiver to tell Mailman what
the URL will be.
