No. It doesnt.

Well, making changes means, well, making changes. Sure it is a bit of a
learning involved if we make changes, but it should always be our goal
to make the learning easy rather than just sticking to the old ways,
because we are afraid of making these changes. More specifically a good
approach here could be to include an almost empty /var/log/messages that
just tells you to invoke "journalctl" instead. Alternatively we could
just add a /var/log/README with the same info.

(Actually, it has been on my TODO list for a while to add
/etc/rc.d/init.d/README with similar info, I just never came around to
actually do it.)
