However, /var/log/messages is filling up with "DHCPDISCOVER / no free
leases" messages for those clients that are unknown to the DHCP server
(eg. on a different subnet).  I suspect that these messages are being
caught by "*.notice" which is why they end up in /var/log/messages.

Is there a way to prevent this happening?

You could try filtering them out of syslog like so (in your syslogd.conf):

"local7.!=notice  /var/log/dhcpd.log"

Which should log everything for local7 except notice. See man syslog.conf(5)
