In general this is true. But in this particular case (fillchar) it should be easily possible to avoid the hint message. I am not sure why it is such a problem to change the declaration of fillchar to tell the compiler that it initializes the parameter. That would be a clean approach. Simply suggesting to disable hints is an awkward workaround and not very much Pascal-like.
