Well dovecot doesn't directly interact with the mailing-list.
mailman sets up new aliases for the list (in postfix you just specify a 
new/additional users-table) and manages the subscribers internally 
(delivering them 'back' to postfix which delivers them via dovecot).

I have this setup running for a while without a problem. The initial 
mailman-setup might needed some trial and error ( i wasn't very experienced 
with it at that time), but once figured out, it is quite easy.
