That's a change introduced by ISC for BIND 9.11 and it is applicable to DNS queries and Zone change notifications.

Though it is considered to be working as designed, if you are concerned that it conflicts with standard DNS query logging format as documented in the Administrator Guide, kindly open a case with Infoblox Support.
