It should not be.  *NO* mailing list is supposed to set Reply-To.
See for example http://aperiodic.net/phil/archives/Geekery/list-reply-to.html

Reply-To is for message authors to set when they DON'T want replies to go to
the list.

In "Mail" on a Mac, "Reply" goes to the author, "Reply All" to the list
and the author.
