Fixed in version Marketing Cloud Release August 2019

Summary
Journey Builder checks for unsubscribe links regardless of which send classification is used.

Repro
-Create new journey
-Drag entry event onto the canvas and choose any DE
-Drag email activity onto canvas
-Configure it with an html email with no profile center or unsub links.
-Configure the send email activity to use a transactional send classification
-Note the auto-validation says the unsubscribe link is missing

Workaround
Delete the entry event. This will omit all email activities from the validator. After the email activities are all configured, add the Entry Event back to the Journey Canvas.
