I think I read somewhere that "ignore" was deprecated and "deny" should be used, but what you write makes sense.

I have added the "ignore booting" and also changed the other two "deny" to "ignore" and it looks like it has stopped logging
DHCPDISCOVER from 00:8c:fa:d6:08:0e via ens192: network no free leases
but it still logs
DHCPINFORM from via ens192: not authoritative for subnet

Is there any way those can be ignored as well?
