No error messages for me,
$ brew info osxfuse
osxfuse: stable 2.7.1, HEAD
Conflicts with: fuse4x
/usr/local/Cellar/osxfuse/2.7.1 (84 files, 5.2M) *
  Built from source
From: https://github.com/Homebrew/homebrew/blob/master/Library/Formula/osxfuse.rb
==> Dependencies
Build: autoconf ✔, automake ✔, libtool ✔, gettext ✔
==> Caveats
If upgrading from a previous version of osxfuse, the previous kernel extension
will need to be unloaded before installing the new version. First, check that
no FUSE-based file systems are running:

  mount -t osxfusefs

Unmount all FUSE file systems and then unload the kernel extension:

  sudo kextunload -b com.github.osxfuse.filesystems.osxfusefs

The new osxfuse file system bundle needs to be installed by the root user:

  sudo /bin/cp -RfX
  sudo chmod +s /Library/Filesystems/osxfusefs.fs/Support/load_osxfusefs

But i did a 'brew update' just to be sure and now i see your messages.
Looks like the best way to get around this is to install from -

That way you get signed binaries and avoid this message.

Religious confuse piety with mere ritual, the virtuous confuse
regulation with outcomes
