In the workflow which is associated to your project, go to the postfunctions of create transition and confirm that postfunctions from create on transition plugin removed or not.

A quick way to see where it may be used can be found by doing a query - see How to find where COT functions are used

I think you've answered your own question - if you don't install a plugin, you can't use it's functions, and so you have to remove all the calls that use it.

The plugin is not required at all, but if you want to remove it, you are going to have to remove all the settings that attempt to use it.
