If you really can't figure out how to unsubscribe from a list, you should
contact the list owner, not the list. The list members can't unsubscribe you
(and it isn't their job to) and the owner may not be subscribed to the
list. The convention for lists is that adding '-owner' to the local part
of the list email address will be an address for the owner.
A good place to search to find out how to unsubscribe to a list is to search
for the mailing lists using google. Usually the information on how to subscribe
and unsubscribe are in the same place and you were able to find out how
to subscribe in the first place, so you should be able to figure out how
to unsubscribe by yourself as well.

No, the standard is that the list information is kept in the headers so that
it can be extracted by mail clients that care to. There is an RFC describing
these headers. They are supplied by the mailing list software used for the
Postgres mailing lists. Have your mail client display full headers for one
of the list messages to get the instructions from there.
