The warnings are not exactly errors. Another thread with the words
"durations needed" in which Mats explained very well some related

I've now been able to check back to 2.10.34, and the
warnings were issued there too.  Seems like they might
have been there a long time.  Perhaps all it needs
is a note in the manual to say warnings are expected.

Yes, as far as I can remember, these warnings have always
appeared when you use the Devnull trick. If you search the
mailing list archives, you'll find that Han-Wen has never
really agreed that this is a good way to do things. However,
I think that it's a clever trick that can be useful from time to
time. The manual should also point out that the alignment
will not be exactly the same as if you use \lyricsto or set
associatedVoice, but since you only need the Devnull trick
in situation where you do not have any typeset Voice to
associate the syllables to, I don't find it a critical issue.
