go version go1.11.2 linux/amd64

For example, the following code yields an unreachable code warning:

package main

func main() {

I think it's entirely reasonable that a warning about unreachable code warns about unreachable code, even if that code is a call to panic. You can disable the warning with -unreachable=false.
