I'd look at it differently. You never become a member of list-root.
When you mail to list-root, list-a and list-b are included in the
delivery, so that duplication supression and the like get done. If
you try to unsubscribe from list-root, you aren't a member (but a
smart list server would walk the tree and remind you that you're a
member of list-b...). And if you unsub list-b, you fall off of
list-root automatically, unless you're also in list-a.
