This is standard RPM behavior - if file did not change, there is
nothing to preserve.

I believe an rpm update does not backup scripts, only configuration
files. Ie, local customizations. And not all customization: changes in
scripts are lost.
It's anything that is marked as a config file in the rpm.

I suppose it is possible that files in 'sysconfig' might
not be considered config files...oh I forgot... I also
keep many directories in '/etc', in RCS because I often
make changes to those files -- want to preserve the suse
originals as well as my changes.

The /etc/sysconfig/files are changed by the fillup framework,
using templates in /var/adm/fillup-templates/sysconfig.*

The fillup framework is however careful not to break anything.
