misc/mailman is in the source distribution. If you installed the
Debian/Ubuntu package, you probably don't have that, but it appears you
do have /etc/init.d/mailman

These are normal.

This of course is not.

Are the ownership and mode of /etc/init.d/mailman the same on both
systems and is there any difference in the contents?

You might try 'systemctl enable mailman' on the non-starting system.
