;; at top level
(eval-when-compile
   (mapcan ...))

But the point is that the macro could be called at runtime and
`mapcan' would not be defined.

Try byte-compiling test.el:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
(eval-when-compile (require 'cl))

(defmacro mapcan-at-runtime ()
  `(setq sample ',(mapcan 'identity '((a) (b) (c)))))
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(which produces the warning), and then

emacs -Q -l test.elc
M-: (mapcan-at-runtime) <RET>
