This can't be the cause. The line is correct.

"The proc file system is a pseudo-file system which is used as an
interface to kernel data structures. It is commonly mounted at /proc." -

There's an entry in fstab, when /proc is NOT on it's own partition.
You also can try

proc            /proc           proc    nodev,noexec,nosuid 0       0

"dev / nodev
    Interpret/do not interpret block special devices on the filesystem.
exec / noexec
    exec lets you execute binaries that are on that partition, whereas
noexec does not let you do that. noexec might be useful for a partition
that contains no binaries, like /var, or contains binaries you do not
want to execute on your system, or that cannot even be executed on your
system. Last might be the case of a Windows partition.
suid / nosuid
    Permit/Block the operation of suid, and sgid bits." -

Perhaps this prevents against something fishy.
