Mails to my 'dooglus' email address (which is on the mailing list) get
forwarded to my full.name email address - but there's no way the
mailing list software can know that.

So I think the only explanation is that gmail itself is seeing 2
messages which it determines are 'the same' in some way (maybe by
comparing Message-ID headers, for example) and deciding to only keep
one of them.

If this is what's happening, then it's already OK to CC replies to
people who are using a gmail address, since they'll only see one copy
of the mail anyway.
