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 about that, you'll see that you are warned against this:

# WARNING: Sendmail has security holes and should be avoided.  In
