I bet the .log files are being stored under /var, and the fedora log
rotation script is just rotating EVERYTHING under /var.  This is stupid.

Try putting the .log files somewhere away from /var/log.

Check /etc/logrotate.conf (if you're using that) and make sure you don't
include your MRTG directory.  This might help.
