Logging into syslog happens due to Plinth stdout getting captured by
systemd and output to journald and then to syslog.

To disable logging to syslog, the following might work (I have not fully
tested it):

$ cat <<EOF > /etc/systemd/system/plinth.service.d/override.conf
$ systemctl daemon-reload
$ systemctl restart plinth


PS: The latest version of Plinth only logs to stdout and systemd journal
and does not log to /var/log/plinth/. It also does not log access requests.
