[fpc-pascal] Initialization of packed record local variables?

I am getting compile hints "Local variable "<variable name>" does not
seem to be initialized" for a number of variables of packed record

Does not the FPC compiler reserve and zero the memory area of such

In any case I am using Move() to fill the variables with data from a
binary buffer, maybe the compiler is not smart enough to detect this
and remove the warning?
