Not in Solaris and 3rd Parties are free to do what ever they wish.

There is no official registry or rules that say where things should go.

That depends on how the code is written. For example some parts of
MIT Kerberos and OpenSSH allow you to specific the syslog facility
and level in one of _their_ config files. Other apps on the other hand
just pick something and hardcode it.

What problem are you trying to solve ?
