It was removed from the default configuration because as indicated in 
the documentation[1], "logs/" is the default value for this 

As a general rule, any directive that has a sensible default value, and 
does not normally need to be changed by the end user, was removed from 
the default configuration in 2.2.

You are still free to add it back to your configuration, if you wish.
