You don't need to add the header. You can "highlight" using ~C, which
checks the To: or Cc: for a string. I have tested a rule in my
.muttrc which does this:
color index red black '(~C freebsd-question)'
It seems to correctly color messages to the freebsd-questions list.
In theory, you should be able to use other mutt patterns as per
This could allow you to search for the List-ID header and
color/highlight based upon that.
