[rsyslog] mark facility not being used for mark messages (3.22)

Hi

I used rsyslog 2.0.6 (with RHEL/CentOS) and upgraded some time ago to 
rsyslog 3.22.1.

I had a problem on 2.0.6 that mark messages were written with facility and 
priority "kern.info" and therefore a selector line such as: 
        mark.* /var/log/marklog
never takes effect, and the mark messages appear in my kernel and messages 
log.

I was hoping that the upgrades might resolve this, but I see they don'. Is 
there are particular reason for the immark module to log mark messages are 
kern.info rather then mark.info?

Note: I can work around this with filters and such, and I am investigating 
do this, but I find it strange that mark is not used in an explicit mark 
message...

Regards
