No, because i don't get this message when doing a normal automated partitioning.
I checked to be sure before sending the bug report. I made sure to dd the
first 1024 blocks of both disks in both cases.
I also wondered, and i looked into partman-auto-lvm, but couldn't find any trace
of the recipes, and was not sure if it was using the mac recipes or not.

I can't reboot the box right now, can you tell me where the recipes are
selected, so i can look at the code ?

As usual, but first i need to find the bug and create the patch in question.
