Mixed bag: Some elements of butter can be anti-inflammatory. Most of what's referred to healthy wise in butter are that it contains butyric acid which appears to have anti-inflammatory properties along with, but to a lesser extent, conjugated linoleic acids. But be careful what you wish for, too much of anything can damaging, particularly as butter is so calorically dense.
