I already have a custom linelog module called eduroam-logging with these entries

Linelog f_ticks { ... }

Linelog eduroam_log { ... }

Linelog inner_auth_log { .... }

The eduroam_log modules is called from the eduroam site in three places:
  Post-Auth-Type REJECT

If it's using the default logging, how do I stop it from using that?
