No. Presumably you have some package which puts things in various
places. You may see that /etc/mailman/mm_cfg.py is actually a symlink to
some Mailman/mm_cfg.py file or vice versa, but /etc/mailman/mm_cfg.py is
probably a correct path.

It doesn't matter that they are on the same server/mailman installation.
What is important is that if in mailman's directory, you run

for list in `bin/list_lists -b`; do
 bin/dumpdb lists/$list/config.pck | grep host_name.:

That every listed host_name be in POSTFIX_STYLE_VIRTUAL_DOMAINS

Is that the case?

When you run bin/genaliases, is there any output to the terminal? If so,
