I'm new to this list.

Welcome to the pond :)
Thanks for your report, though:

If all you want is to write chords+lyrics, LilyPond may not be the
best tool for this purpose.

As soon as you put a score in a markup, you are in markup-mode.
Vertical spacing of multi-line-markups is controlled by 'baseline-skip
and in general not by paper-settings.

\score in \markup is a markup-command, internally calling the
markup-list-command \score-lines, which outputs a list of stencils
(here each stencil contains one line of chords/lyrics). They are
stacked vertically by \score using 'baseline-skip.

So all as expected, no bug.

Please repost this request on the user-list, the bug-list isn't appropriate.
Also, you may ask there why you get that warning and how to prevent ;)
