Standard Mailman never puts the footer in an HTML message part. If the
message is a single part text/plain message, the footer is appended to
the text/plain message. Otherwise it is added as a separate text/plain part.

It could be in your case that unsigned messages are single part
text/plain messages and signatures make the message multipart/signed,
but even so, the formatting of the footer should not be changed.

The article at <https://wiki.list.org/x/4030707> has more on this. It
also has some material about non-standard (and not recommended) patches.
Is your Mailman patched in any way to deal with footers and to put them
in HTML parts?
