These options are arguably hacks to get around broken mailling lists.

If a subscriber sends email from one address, but always sets their
Reply-To to another address, is their Reply-To address overwritten?

Are we ignoring the users wish to explicitly ask that replies be sent to
a specific address?

For a community that is often so dedicated to allowing the user to do
things the way they want to do (and David Combs is one of the loudest
voices in this aspect), having the list configured precisely in a way to
eliminate such a choice is mind-boggling!
