no, it is a pipe(), each message padded to 2048 bytes. Here's an excerpt
from the INSTALL file:

  HP-UX (HP-UX 11.0)
  HP-UX uses a named pipe called /dev/log for log transport, and you 
  can use this with the pipe() driver with an additional option. HP-UX pads
  all incoming messages to 2048 bytes by default, so you need to specify

       source stdlog { pipe("/dev/log" pad_size(2048)); };
