It is additive in that 'mod' also includes 'ddl' queries.

Right now we have log_min_error_statement:
#log_min_error_statement = panic # Values in order of increasing severity:
# debug5, debug4, debug3, debug2, debug1,
# info, notice, warning, error, panic(off)
which does allow control of printing only statements generating errors,
which includes syntax errors. I don't see why this functionality should
be mixed in with log_statement.
Did you want a 'syntax error' level to log_statement, that would print
only statements with syntax errors but not other errors? That doesn't
seem very useful to me.
