The article at <https://wiki.list.org/x/4030574> may help.

The most likely explanation is that you have


in mm_cfg.py. This means that list2 is checking the Sender: header value
against the accept_these_nonmembers list and the Sender: header has the
list1-bounces address, not yours.

There are other possibilities depending on various settings of list1.
Note that cmu.edu publishes DMARC p=none, so it's possible that list1 is
munging the From: header depending on DMARC settings.
