The Samba project (who host our list) enabled a number of DKIM features 
on their various lists in January 2018, one of which rewrites the sender 
name to "take ownership" of the email within the transaction chain so it 
can DKIM sign it correctly. To do that, it can no longer "masquerade" as 
the original sender, but must, instead, indicate it's sending it on 
behalf of the original sender.

Thunderbird honors that DKIM rewrite, and thus displays the sender's 
name differently to you.
