Note also that you should use
b2-> ~  | b4
instead of
b2-> ( | b4)
to get a tie (your current code gives a slur, which is something completely

The warning is correct; there is no bug.

sop = \relative c' {
    \clef treble
    \time 4/4
    e'2-> b2->( | b4) b b cs ||

wds = \lyricmode {     ec -- ce | sa -- cer -- dos | }

This makes sense -- the "ce" syllable ends after the first quarter note of the second bar. The slur in b2->( b4) produces this.

If you remove that bar check, there is no error message. The bar check after "dos" is fine; "dos" occurs at the end of a bar.
