I don't understand what exactly is being suggested
here.

The part I don't understand is what is being said to
done with

Are you suggesting that we add those comments to the
file, which obviously does not make sense. Or are you
suggesting that we uncomment those lines, but in which
case does not make sense because those lines don't
exist in my file. Or are you suggesting that we add
those lines in uncommented form to the file.

Below is a copy of my syslog.conf file

#       Spaces ARE valid field separators in this
file. However,
#       other *nix-like systems still insist on using
tabs as field
#       separators. If you are sharing this file
between systems, you
#       may want to use only tabs as field separators
here.
#       Consult the syslog.conf(5) manpage.
