All the variables in the config file are set in this order:

  1. Internal defaults
  2. Environment variables
  3. Config file items
  4. Command line options

If you have one of the environment variables set, I think it is used although it may not be shown uncommented in the -v output (since it wasn't used in the actual config file).

Should I make it appear uncommented in such a case?

The environment variables aren't "compiled into" hypermail, they're read when hypermail is invoked.
