Good question and the answer is yes.  In the 10 config file, you can edit
the SecDefaultAction setting to suit your needs -

# You can also decide how you want to handle logging actions.  You have
three options -
#       - To log to both the Apache error_log and ModSecurity audit_log file
use - log
#       - To log *only* to the ModSecurity audit_log file use -
#       - To log *only* to the Apache error_log file use - log,noauditlog
SecDefaultAction "phase:2,pass,nolog,auditlog"
