No, what kern.log shows is the ext3 filesystem running the ext3
journal on the root filesystem.  Ext3 will replay the journal entries
when an ext3 filesystem is mounted.  So will e2fsck, but since the
root filesystem is mounted at boot time before the /etc/rc scripts can
be run, the root filesystem has its journal recovery done by the
kernel instead of by the userspace program.
