You should be able to get rid of these with:

doveadm -o plugin/mail_log_events= expunge ..

I thought about this too, but I think in the end it could lead to
trouble. Several doveadm commands already output replies to stdout, so
not all commands can have their Info: logs outputted to stdout. And
having some commands do that and others not isn't very consistent.
