However, both list membership and moderation are handled in the

presumably, the poster of this message is a list member and is not

Except, as Brad correctly notes, this post looks like it came from a
non-member because the "Add to filters" and Ban options are shown as
opposed to the notation that the poster is a list member. Maybe the
list does use a non-default pipeline
I seriously doubt that. DongInn, you didn't do anything funky with
the Mailman filter pipeline, did you?
He has confirmed that it's the standard pipeline.

I think we still have a mystery here, then.
Do we? The screen at http://www.luannocracy.com/mailman.html
message was held because "Reason: Message body is too big: 94200 bytes
with a limit of 75 KB". Was the message in fact too big? If so, it was
held for a valid reason.
The only issue is whether it should have been held for "moderated
member" instead. If in fact, it was posted by a moderated member, it
should be held for that reason because that test precedes the too big
Likewise if it was posted by a non-member.
But if it was posted by a unmoderated member, it would be held for "too
big" as it was. The fact that the page at the above link seems to
indicate the post is from a non-member is not relevant because it
determines membership status at the time the admindb page was visited,
not at the time of the post. If the poster unsubscribed or changed
e-mail address after posting, the admindb page may not be correct
about membership status.
You could check your mailman subscribe log to determine if the poster
was a member at the time of the post, but this won't give moderation
status. Also it won't show if the member changed his/her e-mail
