I have and there is nothing.

There are two conditions that must be present for firstboot to run:

1. It must be on for runlevel 5

2. The file /etc/sysconfig/firstboot must not contain the string 
"RUN_FIRSTBOOT=NO" or it must not exist.

The situation is that /etc/sysconfig/firstboot exists and does contain the 
string "RUN_FIRSTBOOT=NO".  However, firstboot is on for runlevel 5.

This results in the messages being issued.  Previously, firstboot has been 
turned off for runlevel on which results in its not running and no messages.  
For some reason, it was turned back on (or left on).
