This sounds like the change which got commited into the e2fsprogs 1.26 tree.
(Which has been released already, and 1.27 should be out soon...)

So, I don't think it should cause a problem into the future, althogh
it would be better if the RH installer didn't do that, since e2fsck
does stop and ask a question to OK clearing the relevant journal
superblock fields.
