Issue #25243: "Repair a damaged object" message spam if Mechanist Lair is taken before other settlements establish

Say you start a new game, clear the bloatflies with Codsworth, and unlock Sanctuary as a settlement, but don't advance the "Out of Time" quest and don't recruit any settlers for Sanctuary or any other settlements (you can go ahead and unlock settlements, you just can't have any settlers). You head straight to caravan and proceed through Automatron questline, eventually building Jezebel at any workshop you unlocked but not having any other settlers anywhere. You keep doing the questline and then eventually you finish Automatron and unlock Mechanist Lair. You will keep getting the message spam "Repair a damaged object" whenever you enter the workshop menu in Mechanist Lair or any other workshop you unlocked, even after you repair that small generator in Mechanist Lair and there is nothing else that needs repairing in any settlement. (Note to mention: I moved Jezebel to Mechanist Lair right after I unlocked it).

What I'm guessing for this bug is that it's a tutorial text issue, that the process somehow gets scrambled if you get Mechanist Lair while never having any human settlers either due to the small generator there that always gets broken during your confrontation with Mechanist, or due to inheriting a settlement with a defense rating? Once I built a turret at Sanctuary the message finally goes away, there was absolutely no settlement items that was damaged.

Hope I was clear enough.
