I think in the case of symlink creation, normal file create code path
would be in effect, and would properly log parent and symlink source
file paths (if a rule to log it was in effect) which is not something
that would trigger a symlink link denied error.  Symlink link denied
happens only when trying to actually follow the link before
resolving the target path of a read/write/exec of the symlink target.

If the parent permissions of the link's target don't allow successful
name resolution then the symlink link denied condition isn't met, but
rather any other rule that applies to the target path.
