Here 'internally generated' means that user doesn't execute those
statements, rather the replication/backup code form these statements
and send to server to get the appropriate results.

Yes, few days back I have seen one of the user expects
such functionality. Refer below mail:

Agreed, I also think both are different and shouldn't be logged
with one GUC.  Here the important thing to decide is which is
the better way to proceed for allowing logging of replication
commands such that it can allow us to extend it for more
things.  We have discussed below options:

a. Make log_statement a list of comma separated options
b. Have a separate parameter something like log_replication*
c. Log it when user has mentioned option 'all' in log_statement.

>From future extensibility pov, I think option (a) is a good
choice or we could even invent a new scheme for logging
commands which would be something similar to
log_min_messages where we can define levels
level - 0 (none)
level - 1 (dml)
level - 2 (ddl)
level - 4 (replication)
level - 8 (all)

Here if user specifies level = 2, then DDL commands will
get logged and level = 3 would mean log dml and ddl commands.
