Your installation is Mailman 2.1. Mailman 2.1, at least as distributed,
does not use a database. All persistent data for a list is in a Python
pickle at lists/LISTNAME/config.pck.

There are 3rd party add-ons to use LDAP or MySQL for membership data,
but you almost certainly aren'tusing either of those.
