Yes it is. Some mailing lists have set the Reply-To: header to 
point back to the list itself and other do not have it set.

But then there are also useful MUA (mail user agents) like 
Thunderbird, that have a "Smart Reply" button. It does the right 
thing depending if a messages has arrived through a mailing list 
or directly. But of course you still have the possibility to use 
others like reply-all or reply to the sender only.
I like this feature of Thunderbird very much. With it I do not 
have to manually fiddle around to create a proper reply back to 
the list, it does just work and keeps the discussion on the list.
