If you are reporting that you invoke "nginx" as the super-user ("root")
and it ignores the "user" directive in nginx.conf, that sounds to me
like a bug that should be raised.
If you are reporting that you invoke "nginx" as a non-root user, and it
warns that the "user" directive in nginx.conf will be ignored, that is
the expected behaviour.
