I suspect it is more lazyiness that smarts. That had to at least figure out
how to respond to the confirm message in the first place in order to get
subscribed.
My theory is that they don't want to take the trouble to figure out how to
unsubscribe when they (think that they) can just send a message to the list
(not even the admin) asking to be unsubscribed and it will (well actually won't
on these lists) happen.

Maybe posts with "unsubscribe" in the subject could be held for moderation
and/or get an automated reply with instructions for unsubscribing.
