Perhaps I haven't been clear enough: the commit already had a change
ID, added manually, so with or without the hook it would have been
attached to the correct review.

In this case, the hook will actually do nothing, making the current
wording of the message confusing IMO. My suggestion was [1] to change
the mesage to "Amending the commit to add a gerrit change id if none
is available." or something similar.
