Answer:
All these messages are because of user's activity from policy manager.
Please check if they are any custom roles defined and their permission properties. 
Precisely, folder predicate is defined for one of the role but the matching entity (identity provider config, encapsulated assertion, service usage, clusternodeinfo) cannot be in folder.
