Thank you for the bug report and the extensive analysis!
Below i add some comments.

I also prefer the larger fix 2.

1) (eval-when-compiler (require 'subr-x)) is missing

2) We might want to add :version "26.1" into
   `ibuffer-saved-filter' definition.

3) When `ibuffer-old-saved-filters-warning' is shown i miss
   that the buffer displaying it has the key binding
   `TAB' for `forward-button'.
   It might be a smarter way to do this, but i just put the buffer
   in help-mode as follows:

@@ -11,12 +11,15 @@
     (let ((fixed (ibuffer-update-saved-filters-format ibuffer-saved-filters)))
           (setq ibuffer-saved-filters (cdr fixed))
-        (when-let (old-format-detected? (car fixed))
+        (when-let ((old-format-detected? (car fixed))
+                   (buffer-name "*Warnings*"))
+          (with-current-buffer (get-buffer-create buffer-name)
+            (help-mode))
           (let ((warning-series t)
                    (pp `(setq ibuffer-saved-filters 
-             (format ibuffer-old-saved-filters-warning updated-form))))))))
+             (format ibuffer-old-saved-filters-warning updated-form))
+            nil buffer-name))))))

4) [minor comment] It's not very common in Emacs to
call a var `old-format-detected?'.  Adding 'p' instead
of '?' or even not suffix at all looks more usual.

Please, start sentences in capital letters.  Imperative
form verb is prefered than pasive.

removed extra nesting --> Remove extra nesting

Thank you
