Yes, see 2a61bd0096db23123734db439051c859e42b9606:

    ** EIEIO
    *** The `newname' argument to constructors is optional&deprecated.
    If you need your objects to be named, do it by inheriting from 

It comes from passing "password-store" to auth-source-backend.

Looks like Damien silenced that warning in auth-source-pass.el:

(defvar auth-source-pass-backend
   (format "Password store")
   :source "." ;; not used
   :type 'password-store
   :search-function #'auth-source-pass-search)
  "Auth-source backend for password-store.")

… which seems OK to do, since all callers of auth-source-backend in 
auth-source.el do it?  Maybe Stefan (who wrote that warning) can advise?
