Well, thing is, the loading of the two above files seems to happen
very early on, before the -eval form is even loaded -- probably as
part of the code that compiles the form to begin with! And thus
setting it in the file is too late. (Besides, it is already set as
part of the :verbose nil argument to the initial load.) I think this
is a bug in ECL. Note: I'm using package version 0.9i-2 from Debian.

# ecl -eval '(setf *load-verbose* nil)' -eval '(format t "a~%")'
;;; Loading #P"/usr/lib/ecl/cmp.fas"
;;; Loading #P"/usr/lib/ecl/sysfun.lsp"
This seems due to some statements in your $HOME/.eclrc file loading asdf or something similar. The compiler is _NOT_ loaded by ecl by default. It must be loaded by some other code.
