I don't run my own mailman on Mac OS X, but didn't you configure your to make postfix pass mails to mailman at all? That would also
be the location to configure the user and group.

mailman   unix  -       n       n       -       -       pipe
  flags=FR user=list argv=/usr/lib/mailman/bin/
  ${nexthop} ${user}

I guess you want user=_mailman:_mailman here.
