Okay, thanks. IMO it's a bug nonetheless, it's a warning which might
confuse users.

Not sure, IMHO "balanced" replacements like \(foo\|bar\) -> [\1] are
more common,

It's about query-replace, not query-replace-regexp

You can make balanced non-regexp replacements in query-replace like
(foo (bar)) -> (bar (foo))

The warning "No matching parenthesis found" helps the users to write
correctly balanced expressions everywhere, including minibuffers.
When you sometimes write an unbalanced expression intentionally,
you can ignore this warning.

A help should not go in the way. When writing code, this help is useful.
When replacing single chars, not.
