Does anyone understand how System.Data.SqlClient assemblies get pulled into projects?

I have a netstandard 2.0 project where I reference System.Data.SqlClient. I then reference/use that assembly in a Xamarin project. And this seems to work, but creates a compile-time warning in the Xamarin project

The assembly 'System.Data.SqlClient.dll' was loaded from a different 
  path than the provided path

provided path: /Users/user135287/Library/Caches/Xamarin/mtbs/builds/

actual path: /Library/Frameworks/Xamarin.iOS.framework/Versions/

I don't think the warning actually causes any issues - but (like a lot of people) I dislike warnings during my builds. Sadly, I don't know how to get rid of this particular warning.

I guess I also don't know if it has anything to do with my Class Library project using System.Data.SqlClient, or maybe this is just a weird thing with Xamarin iOS?
