so even though I feel this is a bug (it should be silently ignored),
Generally silently ignoring attributes is exactly the opposite you want
from a modern compiler. See bug
In this case though, you are asking for a function which is already final
to be final. The compiler can safely ignore the request because the
request is already satisfied.
If you asked for a virtual function to be final, and the compiler ignored
the request, I'd say it was bad.
