init.d is fine. I was more thinking about "/etc/init/" or other systemd
configuration files. They might execute daeons set up to log to stdout and
systemd would log their output to syslog (or, syslog could pull those logs
from systemd).

as I said, on debian 9 with sysvinit (and syslog-ng) I have no problem like you.
can you check which files are open by clamd and syslog processes?
maybe something similar happens.
