"Requires" and "BuildRequires" are independent of each other.
In other words: "Requires" and "BuildRequires" define two sets of packages where the intersecting set is usually non-empty but usually none is a superset of the other.

Eg. Package A BuildRequires B which Requires C
C is of course installed when package A is built.
