No I was asking if the package was removed not this file.
/var/log/packages/dokuwiki-20160626a-noarch-1_SBo is (or was) a text file
recording the content of the (then) installed package and other information about it
called its metadata, like its name and size. It is not the package itself.

I am wondering where these files come from, as I just built and installed
dokuwiki from SBo to check and get dokuwiki files in /var/www/htdocs/dokuwiki,
not /var/www/dokuwiki.

Anyway please provide the output of these two commands:
ls /var/log/removed_packages|grep doku
ls /var/log/packages|grep doku
