I'm not sure if I understand you correctly. If you think about a model then you should remove vertical supports at bottoms of columns if they 'stand' on the ground beam (elastic soil applied). For the RC design module the difference will be in the arrangement of stirrups as shown on the attached picture.

Indeed as the elastic soil definition is not a support type object the verification gives such message however knowing that you have supported a model correctly (mind the horizontal direction as well) you can ignore it.
