Given that your message came through this list (obviously running
Majordomo) and it had (annoyingly) long lines, I'd say that Majordomo
doesn't do anything to the messages. Reading the code bears this out; it
just passes the message body straight through after tacking on
message_fronters and message_footers.

Give them software that represents the message onscreen as it would be seen
by anyone receiving the message? Sure, I have a mail reader that will wrap
long lines for me when I ask, but most people don't. You might be seeing
what happens when a message without line breaks goes through a mail
transfer agent that converts to quoted-printable. In that case, lines will
be broken with an equals sign at the end. Readers will need a MIME-aware
user agent to properly decode the message.
