Hi bo0od. That message simply means that tor is currently running with the 'RunAsDaemon' option enabled, but this setting isn't in your torrc. This message is meant to help people who edit their torrc, forget to restart tor, and are then confused why the settings didn't take effect.

I'll either be rewording or dropping the notice in the next release. Iirc Debian does something funky with regard to baking this setting into its tor binary, so in your case it's probably a false alarm due to that.
