Generally the signs would not prevent your landlord's liability, particularly with the prior bite history of these dogs.
But, to get directly to your question about the legality of posting the signs, it depends upon whether or not you have full possession of the area where the signs were posted. If you share the property with the landlord and the area is what is sometimes referred to as "common areas" your landlord has the right to post the signs. Actually, the signs are a good idea to help alert unsuspecting visitors. You may want to call the animal control Warden in your area to report these dogs as running loose. You may have a leash law which is being violated by the landlord.

Get some renters ins. If you invite guests over, and you know the dog may be there or come in your yard or house and you know they have bitten people before, you could be sued if a guest gets bitten.
