There is further explanation, including examples, on the con website, and everybody attending was informed about it by email. So hopefully people wouldn't only see the signs, they'd see them in the context of having already got the idea of what they refer to.

And yeah, there have been issues of intrusive photography at other cons, because lots of people wear either elaborate science-fiction themed costumes, or unusual and often sexy clothes they wouldn't get away with in their day-to-day life, and it's easy to assume that a person wearing something incredibly eye-catching must want to have their photo taken at any moment.

Because I was aware of the context, I found the signs a helpful but non-intrusive reminder. But it would be really easy not to know that context.
