On installing VM2.9.9c (on Joomla 3.3.4) and VM2.9.9e (on Joomla 3.3.6) I received the following warning, even though the option was not checked when I went into the configuration panel:
The configuration setting 'Enable database Update tools' is enabled. Please disable this for security measures here in the Configuration panel.

You are not alone.

I just updated virtuemart from V3.0.14 to 3.0.16. After updating VirtueMart the message "The configuration setting 'Enable database Update tools' is enabled. Please disable this for security measures here in the Configuration panel. " appeared. However, in .../administrator/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&view=config, the option "Enable database Update tools" is unchecked.

Cheers

Better unchecked, else you can use dangerous commands like "delete all and install sample data"
I should fix your bug, please support the VirtueMart project and become a member
