URP - Warnings about missing metadata appear after installing

Package: Scriptable Render Pipeline Universal


After installing the Universal render pipeline in a new 2021.1.0b7 project, I get two errors about missing metafiles.

Warning: "A metadata file (.meta) exists but its folder 'Packages/com.unity.render-pipelines.universal/Custom' can't be found, and has been created. Empty directories cannot be stored in version control, so it's assumed that the metadata file is for an empty directory in version control. When moving or deleting folders outside of Unity, please ensure that the corresponding .meta file is moved or deleted along with it."

Steps to reproduce
- Create a new project with Unity 2021.1.0b7.
- Install URP via the package manager.
Notice Issue >> Warnings appear in the console

Reproducable: Windows 10, 2021.1.0b7, 2021.1.0b5, URP 11.0
Not reproducable: 2020.2.4f1 URP 10.3.1

    I have this same problem! Reinstalled the entire 2021 LTS package, restarted computer, uninstalled URP through package manager and then reinstalled, still broken
