    Resolution
    You can safely ignore these messages. You can also usually ignore any "ACL found but not expected..." message. These messages can occur if you change permissions on a file or directory. These messages are accurate but are generally not a cause for concern.

    Also: SUID stands for set user id. Hope this info helps!
