If you're asking if /var/log/packages/dokuwiki-20160626a-noarch-1_SBo was
removed, the answer is yes:
$ ls dokuwiki-20160626a-noarch-1_SBo
ls: cannot access 'dokuwiki-20160626a-noarch-1_SBo': No such file or directory

However, /var/www/dokuwiki still has directories and files:
/var/www/dokuwiki]$ ls
bin/  conf/  data/  inc/  lib/  vendor/
/var/www/dokuwiki]$ ls data/

Wonder why those are stil there.

All other packages are still in /var/log/packages.

Stay well,
