I cannot keep track all of the irrational things done by all MUAs. I'm 
not even surprised by anything new and wrong I see any more.

It is certainly POSSIBLE that because *some* mailing lists impose a 
fixed Reply-To, some MUAs ignore it on list messages. It is certain that 
some just ignore it no matter what because they are written by fools. 
Also, some people configure their MUA to "reply all" by default all the 
time, overriding any normal Reply-To support.

You can see it for yourself in the raw message at the list archive:
