Electrical Design Rule Check drc-204: How to handle ceramic caps?

The drc-204 is used for "Voltage Drop Tolerance Check"

How do you handle ceramic caps that have no polarity but a maximum operating voltage?

 

The following picture shows a typical error that drc-204 should find. But C1 is connected with pin 2 to +12V and C2 is connected with pin 1 to +12V.

As there are no drc_negative and drc_positive pins, how can I set up drc-204 correctly?

 

I read every help page I could get. Also the video gives no clue for ceramic capacitors:
