I'm stumped. You could try

sudo -u mailman /usr/bin/python

just to be sure you've covered everything, but it probably won't be
different. If you haven't restarted Mailman recently, you could try that.

If nothing else helps, you could always add a line to Utils.py so it says

    import dns.resolver
    import dns.rdatatype
    from dns.exception import DNSException
    dns_resolver = True
except ImportError:
    dns_resolver = False

and restart Mailman, but that shouldn't be necessary. Basically, we're
doing the exact thing that Mailman does as the mailman user and it
works, but not when Mailman does it. I can't explain that.
