Hybrid Config : Distribution List manager edit permissions?

In our on premises environment, managers of departments were able to edit their own server-side distribution lists.

We are now in Hybrid mode, so the users and managers are mostly located in the Office 365 cloud. Eventually everyone will be in the cloud.

My question, since the Distribution Lists are not in the cloud, the managers permissions (although visible) do not apply so they cant edit the Distribution Lists.

So this must mean that all DLs need to be moved to the cloud also? How can this be done without having to create new DLs in the cloud (which would then require new AD accounts and names because we cant just delete the current on premises DLs).

Is there a way to move/migrate DLs like we do with mailboxes?

Is there a third party tool?

Because you have dirsync enabled, DGs need to be managed in your local AD. Here's the official article:

The usual workaround is to allow the users to use a subset of the functions in your on-prem environment, either the EMC/EAC or ADUC. Alternatively, you can recreate the groups in the cloud, but as you expect, you will have to use new names/addresses for those.
