With the information that you have provided I was able to test this.
My findings appear to be opposite of what you have outlined, and
correspond with what Hal wrote.
My test message has the same address in Reply-To: and List-Post: and a
different address in From:.
With mail.override_list_reply_to set to true (the default), the reply

With mail.override_list_reply_to set to false, the reply went to the
So, I think Thunderbird's new default is going to cause messages to go
