Could this be overridden somewhere, perhaps in an included file?

Also, do you encounter this group mismatch error on all Mailman web CGI
accesses, or just on mmsearch?

As I said in my prior reply, this is irrelevant. See the FAQ at
<http://wiki.list.org/x/4030645> for an explanation of what's going on.

The wrapper itself is executing as effective group mailman regardless of
how it is invoked because it is group Mailman and SETGID, but it
checking the real group under which it is invoked for security purposes.
Other groups that the invoking user may belong to are irrelevant to this
