You probably use different /etc/sudoers files. It is possible to disable
the logging there. For example to disable the logging for the user
neutron add the following line into your /etc/sudoers file:

Defaults:neutron !syslog

An other way is to isolate the messages by adding a new filter and
destination to your Syslog configuration file. Have a look at the
following article.
