I'll have to trust Mark that it requires code changes.

But if a list's subscribe_policy and unsubscribe_policy require
approval, I would expect that changing an existing address would end
up on the moderator's desk, too.  I'd call that a defect.  WDOT?

You can configure Mailman 2 so that both subscription and
unsubscription require administrator approval.  If this is a Mailman 3
question as Mark suggests, I believe that is still true.

To Kiffen: isn't that better than sending the user to a page that
requires them to go to the service desk and enter a ticket?
