The ident lookup is happening because of xinetd, not proftpd. From the
xinetd.conf man page:

USERID logs the user id of the
remote user using the RFC
1413 identification protocol.
This option is available only
for multi-threaded stream
services.

Thus anytime your xinetd.conf uses the USERID value in the
log_on_{success,failure} keys, xinetd will attempt an ident lookup --
regardless of the configuration of the server (e.g. proftpd) being
executed.
