At least the opensuse and SLE builds do deinstall packages at the end of the build. If that happens and it is still running there is a packaging bug in first place. Or broken base system.
We have some corner cases, where we only want to restart some other services and don't want them to be stopped at deinstallation of the package. But we can control this via Specfile as a workaround ...
KVM (or XEN) build be a solution for that. chroot are known not to be secure neither 100% clean.
Alright, so I would everyone recommend to configure a clean KVM build environment (like build.opensuse.org) in large scale OBS installations.
