I agree. (removed tex-live list from recipient)

Hmm, actually I'm not very familiar with XeTeX, but at least I can say
that pdf is read by both XeTeX and xdvipdfmx independently.

As far as I guess,
Currently XeTeX engine completely ignores /Rotate command in pdf, so
resulting bbox values are the same as original bbox (rotation not
applied). XeTeX produces intermediate file xdv (usually invisible),
and xdvipdfmx reads it. At this point xdvipdfmx again reads pdf, finds
/Rotate and shows warning.

XeTeX ignores /Rotate; xdvipdfmx ignores /Rotate too.
This behavior reserves consistency (though unexpected for us).

​may be
 some kind of faq in SX:
I hope some expert of XeTeX can answer more clearly.
