There are things missing, perhaps because they didn't happen or because
you didn't include them. Here's what I see and what I expect.

Your smtp log:
Sep 09 14:41:45 2015 (7788) <mailman.0.1441824103.9593.wort at wort.org>
smtp to wort for 1 recips, completed in 0.052 seconds

This is the notice being sent to wort-owner. There should be a
subsequent entry with the same message-id for 'n' recips where n is the
total number of owners and moderators. That is the delivery of the
message from wort-owner to the owners and moderators.

log :: mail.log

The above is the delivery of the message to wort-owner. It should be
delivered to a pipe "|/var/lib/mailman/mail/mailman wort owner" to get
to mailman, not relayed to mailroom5.hostrocket.com. This may explain
the issue, but then how does mail simply sent to wort-owner work?

log :: error

You apparently have enabled smtplib debugging as in the FAQ at
<http://wiki.list.org/x/4030716>, but this tells us nothing new that we
don't already see in the smtp and mail.log logs.

log :: syslog

And likewise syslog

Bottom line - If you are showing everything, the notice to wort-owner is
being relayed to mailroom5.hostrocket.com and never gets to Mailman for
delivery to the actual owner and moderator addresses.
