Indeed, \doi{} produces proper links. But I think the note should not be 
triggered when a https://doi.org address is used inside 
\href{doiURL}{text}, where the purpose is to show "text", not a 
DOI-string in standard format. In that way it would remain possible to 
link "text" to a stable doi-URL.

Using \href{doiURL}{text} currently triggers the DOI note.
