sure it is.  it's group 0, rule 3.  IIRC that should be the 3rd rule
from the top of the list.  read this closer:

I'm in a hotel at the moment so I don't have a m0n0wall handy, so I'm
not sure what rule it might be.

properly putting in a non-logging rule on the WAN to drop that traffic
should work.  I've done something similar on one of my installs, but I
can't access it right now to see how it was done.

Alternatively, you can disable logging on the default rule (logging
page, settings tab, IIRC) and then enter the appropriate rules with
and without logging as you desire.  That should definitely work.
