I suspect this code:

      if ($ngdesc) {
        $ngdesc =~ s/\s+(moderated)$//i;
        $ngdesc .= " (Moderated)" if $modflag eq "moderated";  

Bet the description had trailing whitespace.

The old shell script has a different problem; it always adds an extra
(Moderated) when a group is converted from unmoderated to moderated.
