This was once reported and fixed as bug #229232, so it's a regression (I must have dropped the patch during 1.60 -> pre2.0 move).

Created attachment 861915 [details]

Here is the patch, took from 1.60 version and adjusted to fit RHEL7 2.0 version. It suppresses the error message.
I noticed this message shows up in Fedora version too.

Comment 4 Jaromír Končický 2014-02-11 18:23:02 UTC
Thinking about it, it seems that adding "If the sctp module is not added to the kernel..." into manpage is actually pointless, because with the patch it no longer prints that message. So adding comment into man page and fixing the source are both excluding each other.

Comment 7 Jaromír Končický 2014-02-14 09:46:50 UTC
Here I made a different (and probably better) solution of this problem:
