On a Raspberry Pi/Stretch there appears to be a number of boinc-client.service files:
$ sudo find / -name "boinc-client.service"

I have changed the multi-user.target.wants version to read as follows:
Description=Berkeley Open Infrastructure Network Computing Client
ExecStart=/bin/sh -c '/usr/bin/boinc --dir /var/lib/boinc-client >/var/lib/boinc-client/stdoutdae.txt 2>/var/lib/boinc-client/stderrdae.txt'
ExecReload=/usr/bin/boinccmd --read_cc_config
ExecStopPost=/bin/rm -f /var/lib/boinc-client/lockfile

That is removed the ExecPre lines and amended the ExecStart so it should log as before. It is now updating /var/lib/boinc-client/stderrdae.txt and stdoutdae.txt however the stderrgpudetect.txt and stdoutgpudetect.txt are still zero bytes.

Also like the other issue with the error logs full of messages I now get
"dir_open: Could not open directory '/dev/input/mice' from '/var/lib/boinc-client'." repeated. Its headless so there is no rodent.
