I’d have to agree with Apple DTS that this is an interesting exception.

I thought that if the app was indicated as intended for the App Store and
native commands were also indicated an error would be thrown and the app not
built. It doesn’t allow apps that will fail to attempt the App Store but does
nothing for getting them there. Switching from an error to a warning and
forcing the native commands to be stripped would allow the app into the app
store but with unknown functionality probably not working. My understanding.
