these are all related to RUS (Recipient update service) and all are information events rather than warning or error
have you enabled diagnostic logging to MAX in the exchange server properties via ESM?

the events that you are getting are information events.
my question was "have you enabled diagnostic logging to MAX in the exchange server properties via ESM?"
if it is set to MAX, then you can set that to none so that these events don't come up.
