Just one copy --- see src/backend/utils/fmgr/dfmgr.c

A function named the same as a type, with one argument of some other
type, is treated as an implicit type conversion rule by the parser.

elog(ERROR) is the correct equivalent. Looks like someone fixed that
already; I can't find elog WARN anywhere in the current docs, except for
