If the former, those are standard keep-alives.  If the latter, it sounds like either there is a non-javAPRSSrvr server in the Tier 2 rotate list or someone in the Tier 2 rotate list has made a mistake in their configuration.  The default for javAPRSSrvr is to block all of those types of messages.  They are generated by non-javAPRSSrvr software and were considered a nicety in the beginning of APRS-IS but became a major nuisance with the large number connections occurring on the net.  APRServe, aprsD, and AHub all generate these broadcast messages

There are only javAPRSSrvr in the Tier 2 network and consequently
in the rotate list. Take a look at the status page:

I have no idea (yet?) who or what generates the messages Rich and
Rory talked about.
