Extract Data Task from an Image Service

Using 10.2.2, I'm using the Extract Data Task (Server Tools\Data Extraction\Extract Data Task) to extract data from an Image Service. I run the tool successfully.

Next, I want to publish this tool to the same ArcGIS for Server instance as a geoprocessing service. This seems to work OK, except that when Validating the service, I get a warning that the Image Service isn't registered as data source, and that it will be uploaded to the server. Weird. So, I wonder what's happening here ... is this a warning that can be ignored? It doesn't seem meaningful that an image service is being uploaded to the server (that already hosts the service).

In any event, the published service works correctly -- but wondering if I can safely ignore this warning.
