It depends on a case-by-case basis and there isn't quite a one-size-fits-all answer. The decision to choose Warning type for a message has to be taken by the device / application developer.

Warning type could be used is if a low-severity exception / error has occurred. In such a case, the device / application is still functional, but there has been an unexpected exception / error that took place. For that scenario, Warning type might appropriate.

For example, in case of a color printer, one might use Warning type to indicate if an ink of one color has exhausted. In this case, the printer can still be used to print documents but not at its full capacity.
