As I understand it, you need to add "/usr/local/mailman/data/aliases"
to the "alias_maps" variable from your Postfix main.cf. So you need to
edit /etc/postfix/main.cf

On my system:

grep alias_maps /etc/postfix/main.cf
alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases

So if this is your case too you'd probably need to turn that line into

alias_maps = hash:/etc/aliases, hash:/usr/local/mailman/data/aliases
