This is a really old OpenSSH release
https://www.openssh.com/releasenotes.html#5.3 says it's 7.5 years old.

This is what the current version does:

[djm at haru ssh]$ ssh ::1
djm@::1's password: 
[djm at haru ssh]$ tail -2 /var/log/authlog
May 30 10:01:10 fuyu sshd[11899]: Connection from ::1 port 27606 on ::1 port 22
May 30 10:01:12 fuyu sshd[11899]: Connection closed by authenticating user djm ::1 port 27606 [preauth]

authlog being where OpenBSD sends auth.info syslog messages.
