That would be true if you get unexpected wrong results otherwise.
But here you don't (and no float conversion either, as far as I know).

In this query no explicit type conversion is requested and internal type
conversons for comparison purposes should not generate warnings as long
as they stay completely internal. Wrong results means that the internal
implementation is leaking into the user space - and that's when you
start needing a warning.
