We are the one who will generate a trace file and specify it in the jlink plugin option.  It’s okay to ignore the default trace output if no plugin option is specified and I think no warning should be printed in this case.  It’s just like this plugin is disabled.  You may want to add a suboption to turn on verbose that will trace what is generated and what is ignored.
