I guess both /lib/firmware/Makefile and /lib/firmware/check_whence.py
can be removed, or at least moved out of kernel-firmware.rpm.
Well, if it worked you could check the firmware installation against
the WHENCE file.
As it is the WHENCE file is installed in different directory from the
firmware and the makefile so it does not look useful.
