Another way of looking at this is that it might indeed be helpful for unbound to log something to confirm how forwarded queries are being encrypted (or not) if unbound is configured to forward queries.

If I was processing logs and intended for my forwarded DNS traffic to be encrypted, I'd certainly appreciate a log message triggering an alert if some configuration got changed incorrectly and forwarded queries were suddenly happening in the clear.
