I think this is by design, and isn't something that can be undone in settings.
The audit trail has to include entries that show that it has been reviewed. It only looks like you end up in an infinite loop of reviews. The audit trail entries showing that the audit trail has been reviewed should not need to be reviewed further. I had exactly the same thoughts as you, and accepted that this is normal behaviour in the software and that the infinite loop of review was only in my own mind.
Hope that makes sense and helps you.
