Didn't used to do it.

Shouldn't do it now.

Lots of better places to put those (even a new /var/log/revdep-rebuild).

What version of app-portage/gentoolkit is that? 
Comment 2 Jeroen Roovers (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2010-02-22 19:23:45 UTC
I am seeing it too. Must be one of the late 0.3.0 release candidates.

Actually all versions revdep-rebuild in the tree do it.  It is a side effect of using /etc/init.d/  Unfortunately, I haven't found a way to use and tell it to turn off using syslog.
Comment 4 Paul Varner (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2012-05-10 21:04:15 UTC
This actually appears to be "fixed" with at least sys-apps/openrc- installed as the einfo, ewarn, and eerror commands no longer are writing to syslog.  Leaving open until I can verify when this was fixed.
