"Holes"?  What's a hole in a mailing list?

There's no possible way a mailing list can control where the mail in
the To: or Cc: fields goes.  All we can do is try our best not to send
extra duplicates.  We can't get rid of things that are already sent
directly to you; if you're mentioned in the To field, wouldn't you
WANT it in your personal folder?
