I don't think this is ever gonna work. Simple reason: the installation, so RPM
processing, is done by user root, but most likely anyhow you would need the ~
to be the home directory of the user starting the application.

Shouldn't the application take care of that directory upon it's first start?

A workaround could be to create a shell script that you put in place of the
original binary that takes care of filling ~/.acetone; taking this control out
of RPM is the only chance you will have in this case.
