The last login details are default in a new Mac OS X terminal session, whereas the Message Of The Day is from a custom adjustment set by the sysadmin or yourself. If you'd like to change or remove that "Last Login" message, you can do so rather easily by turning to the command line and creating a modifier file.

Provided by: login_4.1.5.1-1ubuntu9_amd64 NAME lastlog - reports the most recent login of all users or of a given user SYNOPSIS lastlog [options] DESCRIPTION lastlog formats and prints the contents of the last login log /var/log/lastlog file. The login-name, port, and last login time will be printed. . The default (no flags) causes lastlog entries to be printed, sorted by their order in /etc/pass

The /var/log/lastlog file stores user last login information. This is binary file and act as database times of previous user logins. You need to use lastlog command to formats and prints the contents of the last login log /var/log/lastlog file.

To restore the change, open terminal and re-do previous steps, except running the last command with: gsettings set org.gnome.login-screen disable-user-list false In Howtos hide user list , Ubuntu 18.04

Bash script which prints out a much more detailed (yet still easy to read) "Last login" message. Uses no outside dependencies other than 'last' (should already be installed on most Linux systems). - IQAndreas/bash-last-login

Login using ssh -vvv and see what debug info shows up. This is odd in that the last login line is usually after the ssh session is setup. Also check your /var/log/{messages,auth,daemon} and whatever else is relevant.
