Just be careful when removing the sticker so you don't peel off any of the SMDs with it.
I have never seen anyone put a sticker on a CPU

The Chinese mostly do it for some reason. No reason to remove it OP, it won't hurt.
More specifically, the seller does not want you to send back a different CPU with swapped IHS for warranty.

But be careful, some of them use it to cover up fallen capacitors. Try heating up the sticker and peel it off a bit with a papper cutter to make sure. Or just remove it if you don't care about warranty.
