This is actually a per-user option, with the default value (for newly
created account) being an admin option. The current default is indeed
to avoid duplicate copies when possible, and this is what your user
account has.

These should really be two independent things. Mailman isn't supposed
to strip people from the Cc list, even if it doesn't send a post to
them to avoid duplicate copies.

Feel tree to change your own account setting to get duplicate copies if
you prefer it that way:
"Avoid duplicate copies of messages?" -> No
