       File is under version-control; use C-x v v to check in/out

It is just a helpful message -- it doesn't change what
toggle-read-only actually does.

The original reason for it was that formerly C-x C-q actually did a
check-in or check-out.  That was natural with RCS.  When we changed
C-x C-q not to do VC operations, we wanted to warn users who still
expected it to do so.

That change was released in Emacs 22, so it is too soon
to get rid of the warning.
