Simple answer: no.

More in-depth answer: Majordomo doesn't do any mail sending, your MTA
does all that. All Majordomo does is feed sendmail (or whatever) the raw
list of subscribers. So, if the sender is in the subscriber list, he
gets a copy.

This would be difficult to implement as an "option" because Majordomo
doesn't record anything about a subscriber other than a mailing address.
So you'd end up with a list on which all senders who are subscribed get
a copy, or not at all.
