You don't say what version of FreeBSD you are running. I recall that
this problem has been discussed several times on freebsd-current though,
so it might be better to check there.

It's a warning and not necessarily an error. IIRC it *might* be an issue
with bsdlabel, but don't take my word for it, go and check current, or
google mailing.freebsd.current.
