comment Is there any way of Filtering out messages from OS X system log?
I appreciate your attempt to help, but you would be better to read the question, which was in the 1st line. FYI I was repairing an old Mac. As soon as I saw the log, I killed the offending services. All I wanted to do was read the log, for other reasons, without all the irrelevant detail.

The question was NOT about how to disable the launch service, but filtering the log

comment OS X Yosemite always mounts usb-hdd to the new folder
As @XQYZ says you need to create the folder. I haven't actually done this for years, because it usually isn't necessary in OS X, but there does seem to be a problem with duplicate folders. You need an entry like above replacing none with mount point, and noauto with auto

comment Is there any way of Filtering out messages from OS X system log?
This looked promising but the 'Ignore Sender' is greyed out. I probably wouldn't make sense to block launchd. The error message is com.apple.launchd.peruser.503[154] (de.novamedia.VodafoneDeviceObserver[1386]): posix_spawn("/Library/Application Support/Vodafone/NML2NDeviceObserver.app/Contents/MacOS/NML2NDeviceObserver", ...): No such file or directory The actual app is long gone, it was only the launch service that is generating error messages (for the last 5 years!)

comment How to get file metadata?
The difference is probably related to resource forks. These were an integral part of Mac OS prior to OS X, but are uncommon now. Many "backup" utilities do not copy these, and in some cases they are copied as separate hidden files. If you google for "resource forks" you will find some info. Where did the original file come from?
