This usual happens, if you do automatic updates from a systemd service, e.g.
a timer.
systemd service is calling directly zypper up/dup, which installs the RPM,
which runs fontsäconfig in the post-install.
Or systemd service is calling a script, which calls zypper, ...

Or something like salt is calling zypper.

Or you boot by DVD to update the system with YaST.

So every time zypper is not called by an user/admin on the commandline,
there is no HOME set.


I understand zypper can be called by anything, but zypper and fonts-config
are tied up via fontpackages’s %reconfigure_fonts macro, which calls
“fonts-config -quiet”, that is system mode not user mode, HOME stuff
be called at all.
