I think aria-haspopup=true would be a great attribute for this.

But if the dialog is fully accessible in that you send and trap focus within it and return focus when it's closed then there's no particular warning you need to give users, based on my reading of WCAG. If the dialog has role=dialog they'll get that semantic info once they enter it.

This was specifically discussed.  A link IS a “user interface component”, but clicking on it was not considered a change of setting (in normal use of the link to open or go to a new page of content) and the language of the SC was written to (try to) make this clear.
