Using 'service' scripts to control ALL server's services (Mailman IS a
service irrespective of its version, right?) isn't absurd or
non-sense. I think one should respect distribution structure and keep
things work as distribution creator's intended.

Considering this 'packagers related' stuff as not important and
insisting on 'native' way to use cron has less sense for me than the
opposite. Why standard control of Mailman service in very popular
distribution family has no reflection in Mailman documentation you
mentioned and sometimes considers like 'artefacts'?

May be this attitude has some influence on that fact that there is so
old version of Mailman in last Centos release?...
