Yes, the reason package-initialize matters is just that it loads
bytecomp and advice.el only decides to compile if that has been

    (defun ad-should-compile (function compile)
       ;; everything else means `maybe':
       (t (featurep 'byte-compile))))

(bytecomp.el provides both `bytecomp' and `byte-compile').

--eval '(setq after-init-time t)' has no effect, but doing

    (let ((after-init-time t))
      (require 'modeline-posn))

in the init.el file does prevent the warning from popping up. It also
improves the error message: the prefix becomes
".emacs.d/lisp/modeline-posn.el:Warning:" instead of "Warning
(bytecomp):". This is because byte compilation is let-binding
warning-prefix-function which is not saved for delayed warnings.
