I know that some of the Unused global option(s) LaTeX warnings can be resolved including some packages (as in here). Specifically, How can I get rid of the following warning?

LaTeX Warning: Unused global option(s): [cleardoublepage=plain].
  • What document class are you using?

  • It is a modified ABNT (brazilian standard, available as abntex).

    It's a specific option for the KoMa classes, so it doesn't apply to any package in particular and with the ABNT class it's useless.

  • It means I can remove this setting from the class file? (Also, place your comment as an answer so I can accept it - if you wish).

The option cleardoublepage=plain is specific to classes from the KOMA-Script bundle (scrartcls, scrreprt and scrbook). I know of no other class or package that knows how to interpret it.

Remove the option, if you're not using such a document class.
