It does include the standard "mailing list" headers, though. You're not
supposed to need the Reply-To: header; the mail agent is supposed to
interpret the list headers instead. There are technical reasons to
prefer that over the Reply-To: method. (Alas, I don't remember what they
are.) Unfortunately, some mailers just don't do mailing lists the
"right" way.
