local 6 informational messages in /var/log/messages apart from all the other messaging also being sent to /var/log/messages

If my rsyslog.conf is configured to write *.info *.warn *.kern and some others to /var/log/messages is there any way to identify the local6 *.info messages apart from the *kern and *.warn and others in  /var/log/messages? I've noticed sometimes that the messages contain kern and warn but not just sure what *.info are and if there's an easy way to identify them
I'd rather not have to configure /etc/rsyslog.conf to have another log file for just *.info if it can be avoided. If there's no other way then I might just have to do it but I'm curious what the local 6 information messages actually are.

*.ino
Includes local6.info

If you do not want local6.* going into message, you need to explicitly exclude them.
Do you have a local6.info /var/log/local6?

change the file separately for each log, so you can identify the logs easily. configure in a way that your log will store in a separate file.

I thought local6 was the same thing as *.info. Are they something different then ?
