After a lot of trial and error testing finally determined the cause of
this problem is ddclient. When I disable ddclient from running those
messages stop happening.
ddclient is a dynamic DNS auto updater written in perl. I have now
deinstalled ddclient and written my own dynamic DNS auto updater sh
script that I am calling dynip with intention to add it to the port
