It will eventually. There are several things going on. Your original
post showed bounces all from 5/31. Bounce processing only increments the
score once per day. Subsequent bounces in the same day are logged but
not counted.

When a users bounce score reaches threshold, the users delivery is
disabled by bounce and the user is sent the first notice, but the user
is not unsubscribed until after bounce_you_are_disabled_warnings have
been sent at intervals of bounce_you_are_disabled_warnings_interval. The
sending of subsequent notices and ultimate removal also depend on
Mailman's cron/disabled being run.

What's in Mailman's bounce log?
