There is. Changelogs are useful to follow the changes in a source. If
you do not put this into VCS, developers have to run VCS diff and (r)log
commands to know, what has been changed. I'm a big fan of file
changelogs. Creating/updating it first is not very comfortable for
developers. I further think, that many projects use the changelog entry
as commit message, which is IMO different to the OPs opinion, that
changelogs are the duplicate of the svn/cvs logs. The commit message is
more a duplicate of the changelog entry.

Of course, just my humble opinion.
