What problem? If the above warning is not displayed on another install
that other install is probably running an earlier release of the
software that did not yet put the warning there.

It means don't give the URL to that metadata to anyone (e.g. an IdP or
Federation Operator) to use "as is" as this will make a proper key
rollover process pretty much impossible.

Any specific reasons you don't want HTTP Cookies limited to TLS/SSL?
Otherwise make that cookieProps="https".
