Samba 4.13 has not removed SMBv1.  We still plan to remove the code
'eventually' but nobody has made a concrete plan for that, so these are
just warnings at this point.

Those warnings are however serious, when it happens we won't be
deciding then waiting a year (but will probably do it at the start of a
dev cycle), as we have given all the notice we promise to.

Currently what we have done is to deprecate smb.conf options and change
