I am seeing those two lines from various applications that have SASL 
compiled in.  I researched this about a week ago and the messages appear 
to be harmless.  There may be a way to stop the messages, but I have not 
found it.

The closest that I found was to add a file for the application, like 
Slapd.conf, with contents of 'auxprop_plugin: slapd', but I do not know 
where the file goes.  I tried in /opt/csw/lib/sasl/ and 
/opt/csw/etc/sasl2/, but that made no difference.  With the application 
being saslpasswd2, I do not know what to do.

FWIW, I recently made a version update for Berkeley db.  See the 'View 
news and notes' page for the package for upgrade instructions of 
existing databases.

Sorry, not any help here.  Damjan is the sasl maintainer.  I do not know 
if he monitors this list.  If you do not get an answer from the list, I 
would send him a message from the CSWsasl web page.
