This happens whenever you use  \includegraphics  (as pdfpages does)
to include a PDF that declares a version greater than 1.4.

There is a way to change the subversion number that pdfTeX declares

... but pdfTeX does no actual processing of included graphics.
So it really does not matter what version has been declared.

Provided the resulting PDF is suitable for your final purpose,
then there is nothing that needs to be done.

Some document submission systems have been reported to reject this;
but that is surely due to poor programming, dating back many years.
