Okay, I opened a feature request in the mailman tracker:

OK, according to the code, it's used when you reject the mail automatically - although there's a suggestion to use it when holding the message as well:

       # If the member's moderation flag is on, then perform the moderation
        # action.
        if mlist.getMemberOption(sender, mm_cfg.Moderate):
            # Note that for member_moderation_action, 0==Hold, 1=Reject,
            # 2==Discard
            if mlist.member_moderation_action == 0:
                # Hold.  BAW: WIBNI we could add the member_moderation_notice
                # to the notice sent back to the sender?
                msgdata['sender'] = sender
                Hold.hold_for_approval(mlist, msg, msgdata,
            elif mlist.member_moderation_action == 1:
                # Reject
                text = mlist.member_moderation_notice
                if text:
                    text = Utils.wrap(text)
                    # Use the default RejectMessage notice string
                    text = None
                raise Errors.RejectMessage, text

Maybe that's already the case in newer version of Mailman, else you prolly should bug report this.

I made a couple tests and I have no idea where this text is actually used. Maybe you should ask the mailman team?

It would be nice if some default rejection notice, for instance as configured at "", would be sent when the moderator chooses to reject an email held for moderation.

I'm not sure if this is a bug, or would be a new feature.  The mailman page is unclear.  It reads like this is how things are supposed to work, but might have meant that the configured default notice is only sent for automatic rejections.
