Default Lubricants with Teflon - Good or Bad?

I just picked up a FNP-357 today, and I noticed the manual indicates no lubes containing Teflon should be used. Is there a specific reason why Teflon would be bad for a semi-auto handgun, or the FNP in particular?
I've gotten somewhat partial to Rem Dri-Lube (containing Teflon), but I can always go back to straight RemOil.

Second time I've heard that one. Can't for the life of me understand why.

I use TW when I need grease and clp for things that need oil.

Its bc the teflon gets really gummy in semi cold conditions
