Seems to be in all of them. Probably added by the mailing list software.

Why don't you always see it?

Possibly a combination of being directly listed as a recipient, so that 
you get a copy not sent through the mailing list, together with an email 
client that suppresses the duplicates (if the mailing list software 
doesn't change the Message-Id:). But since heretofore you haven't 
participated in this thread, if you don't see the Unsub link in all of 
this thread, I doubt this is the explanation. You message to which I'm 
replying is the first in this thread that came directly to me and which 
doesn't have the link, because you addressed me directly.  Use 
Reply-List rather than Reply-All if your MUA supports that.

To avoid people that accidentally subscribe from asking how to 
unsubscribe, perhaps.
