No, you're correct.  The Mailman system adds a bunch of headers and changes the "from" and "reply-to" headers (don't recall the exact details, but there's a bounce-detection scheme called VERP that causes more than the normal amount of rewriting), and adds "[time-nuts]" to the subject line, but it doesn't completely change the headers.  I was misremembering.
