warning C28291: Post null/notnull at deref level 0 is meaningless for function <x> at param <number>

The Code Analysis tool reports this warning when the post condition of a dereference level-zero parameter is specified to have a null/non-null property. This error occurs because a value at dereference level zero cannot change.
