Because the postmaster has no client to receive a WARNING, and the log
message level is likely to be such that a WARNING won't get there
either. Furthermore, if there are any live backends that might chance
to issue this message, having it pop up as a WARNING seems more likely
to be confusing than helpful, since it'll be unrelated to whatever SQL
command they are doing.
In general, LOG elevel should be used for background-type problems,
which is what this is.
