The only way I've seen this done is through the configuration file or
through a cronjob.  So... if it isn't in your configuration file, then
it must be elsewhere.  Check your cron entries to see if there's a
program running that does that.  logrotate will do it if it configured
that way... "man logrotate" will give you the info you need if this is
going on.
