I know virtually nothing about Plesk or their Mailman package, but it
looks to me from a brief look at the above that it's talking about a
migration process which creates a new list on the target and adds users
to it.

This is not a good way to move a list. The way to move a list is to copy
the lists/LISTNAME/config.pck file from the old server to the new. Then
welcome messages will not be an issue.
