that is a new and strange behaviour, because
Plot[a*Sin[x], {x, 0, Pi}]

will copy the messages in your notbeook

Plot::plnr: a\Sin[x] is not a machine-size real 
number at x = \

and what stand a the begin of the message ?? 
"Plot::plnr" does this eventual mean, that the 
function Plot[] had generated the message ??

When you write you own function like

myFunction::bad = "This is bad"

myFunction[x_] := If[x > 1, 
Message[myFunction::bad]; x, x]

the message is placed in your notbeook and it is 
up to you, to find out that "myFunction::bad" is a 
message from myFunction.
