The newsgroup is moderated (largely to keep out spam) but the mailing
list is not moderated. 

Auto-moderating the mailing list would be an idea if it was 100%
accurate. Unfortunately, auto-moderation is nowhere near that
perfect. It might catch 95% of the FAQs, but still let in that other
5%. It would also probably catch at least a few non-FAQ questions with
the same text.
