So you are running a self-compiled claws-mail, as the most recent from
openSUSE Leap 15.0 is 3.16.0-lp22.214.171.124

That is the most recent leap 15.0 kernel

If you build from git, you are obviously familiar with reading sources.
$ ack 'Your Claws Mail configuration'
would have shown you that the message is issued from
src/prefs_migration.c line 51, where you can see that
CLAWS_CONFIG_VERSION was checked, which is currently
defined to 3 in src/prefs_common.h
$ cd ~/.claws-mail
$ grep config_version *rc | sort -u
Does that show you anything weird?
Do *NOT* edit those files while Claws-Mail is running. Close CM and
then edit if you think you spotted the problem(s)
