That looks to me like it has everything to do with mailman, and nothing
with google. Mailman is the mailing list software used for this list
(see the headers).

By default, I understand mailman sets the default for new lists  to
"don't return your own posts" for new users/subscribers. The list admin
can change the default for new subscribers on a per-list basis, but in
my 25y experience this rarely happens. Every subscriber can make their
own setting here, for each list, or for all lists running on the same
server/mailman instance.

If you don't get any list email at all, not even from other list
members, assuming you subscribed correctly you'd have to take that up
with google as your email provider (good luck). Or just get a real
mailbox somewhere else that works ;-)
