Disable favicon and apple-icon errors in nginx logs

My production server error.log (/srv/www/domain.com/logs) consist largely of errors relating to missing favicon.ico or apple-touch-icon files.

GET /favicon.ico HTTP/2.0
GET /apple-touch-icon-152x152-precomposed.png HTTP/2.0

I am looking to disable logging of these to clean up the error logs, before I do so I wanted to test the nginx modification on my development environment first.

However, I don’t get these logs on development. Any idea why? Is it already disabled when on ‘development’?

My approach for the above is (not tested yet):

Disable favicon.ico logs
> /trellis/nginx-includes/domain.com/disable-favicon-logs.conf.j2

# {{ ansible_managed }}

location = /favicon.ico {
  log_not_found off;

Have not yet found the the equivalent for the Apple icon yet.

To wrap this up, main question is as above:
Why might I not get GET /favicon.ico HTTP/2.0 on my development environment logs?
I somewhat want to enable them, simply to check my config change above would work.

favicon’s are cached aggressively, have you tried from another browser or clearing your cache?
