Description:
Starting up mysql 5.7.6 gave the following warning:

2015-03-11T21:27:50.307379Z 0 [Warning] 'NO_AUTO_CREATE_USER' mode is deprecated. It will be made read-only in a future release.

This is confusing as I hadn't actually configured anything with NO_AUTO_CREATE_USER in my /etc/my.cnf file.

The cause of the problem was really an /etc/my.cnf setting like this:

sql_mode = TRADITIONAL,ONLY_FULL_GROUP_BY

The TRADITIONAL sql_mode is a combination of other modes. That should be mentioned.

How to repeat:
see above.

Suggested fix:
Please modify t the error message clear and indicate that the setting refers to sql_mode.

So maybe something like this:

2015-03-11T21:27:50.307379Z 0 [Warning] sql_mode contains the mode: 'NO_AUTO_CREATE_USER'. This mode is deprecated. It will be made read-only in a future release.
2015-03-11T21:27:50.3074000 0 [Warning] Some sql_modes combine the effects of other sql_modes, so you may not have configured this explicitly.
2015-03-11T21:27:50.3074000 0 [Warning] Please check http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/sql-mode.html for more details regarding the configuration of sql_mode.

Given the changes in sql_mode behaviour in MySQL 5.7 I think it's useful to be a little explicit about this especially as you want to remove this specific "mode" in a future release.
The extra comments provide a bit more context and point where to find more information if needed.
