When translating the module source that is from "the system".

I would expect an instantiation that happens because of the local code to
warn, yes.

If compilers don't warn on that today I'd consider it a bug.

Right, a warning created by an instantiation in the module source for a
"foreign" module probably shouldn't warn.
