Answering my own question… I now see a note at the bottom of mergAVCamCreate that says 

"If only capturing barcodes or photos set the microphone to empty before calling mergAVCamCreate to avoid app store rejection.”

So apparently my problem has a solution. At least as soon as I figure out how to set the microphone to “empty”  :- )

I believe that the dialog is produced as a result of including mergAV in the build.  An automatically generated dialog is handy… but in this case I agree with the reviewer. My app scans QR codes so I understand that it asks the user for permission to use the camera. And the reviewer probably would have thought that obvious enough. Unfortunately, in a separate dialog, it also asks for permission to use the microphone.  (Which the app doesn’t use.)
