I believe it's because the Apache permission problems led to a workaround that has a lot of ugly side effects. The shibd.logger file is used initially regardless of what's in the configuration and that probably is establishing the behavior of the category before anything else can do it.
If you want to control the logging globally, set SHIBSP_LOGGING to the logging configuration to use for everything before running anything.
Alternative it may work to pull out the references to the transaction category from shibd.logger
