I am having the same issue. On files going to iCloud, Dropbox and files only on my Hard Drive. I do not have iCloud Drive set to backup all files. No matter if the images are embedded or linked, and layers locked or unlocked. Everything I save with Illustrator issues a warning of modified outside of illustrator. I created a test file with only linked and embedded images from my hard drive with the same result.
