IMHO they would mostly fail under §18 and GDPR wouldn't apply:

Of course, if a company was using the mailing list to process personal
data, it should have been stated the whole time.

Being nitpicky. What about sysadmins subscribed to this list as part of
their professional activity ? (but otherwise interacting in the same way
as a hobbyist)
