Please include the following checklist in your PR:

  • Any changes that could be relevant to users have been recorded in the
  • The documentation has been updated, if necessary.

It seems that warn messages are not shown when running a script so the more straigthforward way is change the log level of the relevant message. Not sure it it could have a unwanted consequence.
It fixes #5001.

I've tested the change manually running a script to check the message is actually shown.

The docs help, a little.

@dbaynard not sure about the best way to inform the user, but it seems that show the original value of local-programs-path could help it to identify and change it.
