quote form manual:
"Note that, when header editing is enabled, you can create a Mail-Followup-To header manually.  Mutt will only auto-generate this header if it doesn't exist when you send the message."

Manually you can also type 'E' in the menu before you send the mail to modify the headers.

In experimenting with it I found one has to do a "list-reply" or "group-reply" in order to honour this header.
Also it is possible for the softweare behind lists.debian.org to overwrite this header, but I don't know about that.

So don't blame Mutt.
