Yes, the message comes from the kernel. I don't know what functionality
is needed to for the kernel to handle context=none, so I can't tell.
At least, there is not CONFIG_SECURITY_SELINUX in the config, but

In anyway, I'll continue to edit the systemd unit to remove the context
option, that's not a big deal.

$ sudo mount -vt tmpfs xxx -o context=foo /tmp/tmp.lhw79USQUe 
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on xxx,
       missing codepage or helper program, or other error

       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail or so.
$ dmesg | tail -1
[1569927.987083] tmpfs: Bad mount option context
