That works for making it less frequent, but doesn't turn it off. Here's how
to turn it off - in syslog.conf:

        mail,mark.none,news.none;local2.none    -/var/log/messages

This might need tweaking for your syslog.conf, but the basic idea is just 
add "mark.none" to any lines for files that are getting the MARK messages in
