the manual says:
"Once you enable this module, users can join a room using a MUC capable Jabber 
client, and if they have enough privileges, they can request the configuration 
form in which they can set the option to enable room logging."

do you see this option in the MUC configuration form?. 

If you want all rooms to have logging enabled  by default, you should add that 
to the set of default mod_muc options:
{logging, true}
