I can confirm that this does happen.

This would definitely be an improvement although I guess it would need a
change in the dialog structure (reintroduce "use existing/format"
question as the first question asked?).

I think it would be sensible to change the default for this to "don't
check". I am currently getting a warning myself during boot from a FAT
check that a backup of my boot sector is different from the original or
something with a lot of output to console. To be honest, I'm not really
interested (it's probably been wrong for years and it's never bothered me
in the least).
