It is a normal message because Dynamic search ads do not use keywords as targeting even if the system allows you to add keywords to DSA ad groups.

The reason why your keywords tab is still functioning in this campaign is not for targeting but for negative targeting , because you can only add negative keywords for DSA.

 

Normally a programmer should have blocked users from adding standard keywords for targeting in a DSA ad group and should have thrown an error message such as "for Dynamic Search ads you can only add negative keywords". It is a too often made "mistake" by users to add "positive keywords" to DSA.
