I'm confused about list.domain3.com vs. lists.domain3.com in relay_domains.

It appears your mail is being mapped to MailingList at domain3.com via the
mapping in /var/lib/mailman/data/virtual-mailman, and there is probably
an alias for this address in /var/lib/mailman/data/aliases, but there is
no hash:/var/lib/mailman/data/aliases in alias_maps.
