You mean the contents of the xorg-server.install file?

    post_upgrade() {
       if (( $(vercmp $2 1.16.0-3) < 0 )); then

    post_install() {
       cat <<MSG
     >>> xorg-server has now the ability to run without root rights with
         the help of systemd-logind. xserver will fail to run if not
         from the same virtual terminal as was used to log in.
         Without root rights, log files will be in ~/.local/share/xorg/

         Old behavior can be restored through Xorg.wrap config file.
         See Xorg.wrap man page (man xorg.wrap).

    xorg-server.install (END)

That was true for versions under 1.16.0-3 as evidenced by the version 
comparison, but it is not true anymore, Xserver 1.17 dumps its logs to 
syslog. And syslog is trapped by journalctl.
