The beginning of each major element is handled by the
DocBook XSL titlepage mechanism.  The titlepage
templates are generated from a specification file
named titlepage.templates.xml.  Those generated
templates are in titlepage.templates.xsl, and you
can see there are many selections for sectioninfo.
The empty template you saw for 'sectioninfo' just
prevents an uncontrolled dumping of its content
into the output.

To turn them off, you need to generate a customized
titlepage templates file, removing all elements in
the spec for 'section' except for 'title'.

<t:titlepage t:element="section" t:wrapper="div" class="titlepage">
  <t:titlepage-content t:side="recto">
    <!-- remove all the rest -->

See this reference for a HOWTO on customizing
titlepage templates:
