There's a long thread about this already on the freebsd-ports@ list, 
starting with this message:

https://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-ports/2020-April/118351.html

and there's this PR:

https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=225543

The problem is that mailman3 is apparently badly documented; has been 
rewritten in a way significantly incompatible with existing mailman2 
setups and despite being 5 years old, is still missing some important 
functionality that mailman2 has.
