The names in POSTFIX_STYLE_VIRTUAL_DOMAINS must exactly match the
host_names. I.e. for the above, the only list that will get
data/virtual-mailman and data/transport-mailman entries is the one with
host_name = 'domain1.de'.

Since host_name is intended to be the email domain of the list, not the
web domain, I'm guessing that the host_name values for the three lists
that currently begin with 'lists.' should actually be just 'domain1.de'
or 'domain2.de', but if you really mail to these lists
@lists.domainx.de, you need to add 'lists.domain2.de' and
'lists.domain1.de' to POSTFIX_STYLE_VIRTUAL_DOMAINS.

Also, if 'vxxxxxxxxxxxx.yourvserver.net' is a virtual domain as opposed
to a Postfix mydestination (local) domain, that needs to be in
