There is a sendmail link in /usr/lib/sendmail though, so it would be
fine if that's the path that mailman used.
But it's irrelevant anyway, since that setting only applies if you set
the DELIVERY_MODULE to Sendmail. And if you check the comments in
Defaults.py about that, you'll see that you are warned against this:
# WARNING: Sendmail has security holes and should be avoided. In
# fact, you must read the Mailman/Handlers/Sendmail.py file before it
# will work for you.
#DELIVERY_MODULE = 'Sendmail'
DELIVERY_MODULE = 'SMTPDirect'
