Or as likely, the site's sendmail config file did.
And not all sites/mailers add this header.

With all the lists I'm on, group responses are *much*
more common than individual responses. You make the
common response the easier response. In general, I
prefer the reply to go to the list, so I like the idea.
I'm on 7 or 8 lists, and all but a couple include a
Reply-to: list_address header.

Too bad. The RFC will just have to get its own list. 8^)
Seriously, this is a logical thing for some lists, and it's
up to the list admin and/or the list members to decide what
they want. If the originator has a problem with this, they
can discuss it with the list administrator and/or the list.
