Perhaps it is a combination of two things.

On other lists like Linux-Kernel, subscribers are not clueless enough to
use an auto-responder that replies to messages that have "Precedence:
bulk" set. Additionally, most UNIX auto-responders will only send one
notice per configurable time period (i.e. a week).

Also, I think that other lists are running a filter up-front that
removes messages that are from auto-responders.

The list plainly is filtered already for spam (X-Spam-Rating: 1.6.2 0/1000/N). Why doesn't it filter for out of
office messages?
