AST nodes themselves don't have warning logic, that's built into Sema.
You can look at the code there, but, no, the warning machinery doesn't
know about AST nodes so it doesn't have a "report nodes instead of
What you probably want to do is -ast-dump to look at what sort of node
types are in your example & try to match on those.
