That is a true statement, as can easily be proven by looking at the
source code: nothing except syslogger.c pays any attention to the
Log_filename variable.

That would depend on other settings that you haven't mentioned,
particularly log_destination.  Keep in mind also that the active setting
of logging_collector can't be changed without a postmaster restart
(which is why it's a separate variable from log_destination).
