Are you sure you have specified the font family for the entire document? 
If you forget to specify the font-family then it defaults to 
"sans-serif,Symbol,ZapfDingbats" By default sans-serif maps to 
Helvetica, so that may be how it ends being used in your case.

These warnings are actually a known bug, see: 
https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=47279. However, this 
does suggest there are some parts of your XSL-FO for which no font has 
been specified.
