Yes there are manufacturers that try to say this! A quick call to their legal department expressing your concern will reveal the fact that they cannot do this and will not try to enforce that clause.
The truth is you can use any adhesive you wish and the floor warranty remains the same. You can stick the floor down with peanut butter if you'd like.
On the other hand if the flooring manufacturer raises any questions about the interaction between your adhesive of choice (or peanut butter if you used that) you will be stuck trying to prove the issue is not with the adhesive. This could include staining, curling, bubbling, product shrinkage, etc.
