They look like DEBUG messages to me ;-)

I would certainly not want the postmaster to start up completely
silently; the "database system is ready" message should absolutely not
be removed.  The "when shut down" output also seems moderately useful
to admins.  The middle three lines are perhaps not useful in normal
operation but I can see them being pretty important in a failure
scenario, so I'm not that much in a hurry to take them out either.

What exactly was the complaint, or rationale for complaining?
