That sounds very wrong to do. This is admin territory and not package
management. There are tools sync and deploy /etc setting per-machine
across big networks, and RPM is surely not the right thing to use

RPM is for the operating system, not for host configuration. Most
stuff in /etc is marked as config for that exact reason. First, static
system-config does not belong in /etc, second non-admin editable files
just do not belong in /etc. It's all wrong, just as the misguided
entire fstab.d/ feature to start with.
