Presumably you didn't keep the unmodified source as the .orig.tar.gz.

I don't know how or why, since the correct way to generate the
.orig.tar.gz file is to use the CP or MV commands (or the equivalent),
which do not change tar archives in the process.

It is a bad thing to generate warnings which must be ignored 99.9% of
the time.
