This occurs because the list is not explicitly addressed in a To: or Cc:
header of the post. E.g., the post is sent as a Bcc: to the list.The
real question is why is this one person sending to the list this way?

That's the one setting on the page that doesn't affect this. You can
stop all implicit destination holds by setting
require_explicit_destination to No.

Also, if posts sent to a different address are relayed to the list, you
can add the different address to acceptable_aliases to avoid an implicit
destination hold for posts relayed from that address.
