That's highly debatable. You should install from source only if you know that you will do NFD development or otherwise need to modify the source code. This is especially true on Linux, where the PPA is well-maintained. For macOS, we should provide a Homebrew formula, but that's another task.

this task proposes to move "Installing NFD from Binaries" section to the end of the INSTALL document

Disagree with this.

add a warning for users who want to install NDN Control Center.

I'd say delete that part altogether. The old Control Center is too old to be useful to anyone, and there are no plans to update the new Control Center to provide precompiled NFD binaries AFAIK.

The current version of the INSTALL document makes "Installing NFD from Binaries" section the very first paragraph. However, the NDN Control Center it introduces doesn't use the latest version of NFD and ndn-cxx. And empirically, people more tend to build from source. To not mislead beginners, this task proposes to move "Installing NFD from Binaries" section to the end of the INSTALL document and to add a warning for users who want to install NDN Control Center.
