You are getting a wrong perspective here. Any software can contain
malicious parts. The build service just provides a platform to create
RPM packages from open source code.

Would you trust a software, that you compile yourself from source on
your computer, more than a RPM package of that software that you got
from the build service? How would you tell that the source does not
contain malicious parts?

In Gentoo/FreeBSD/Debian/Ubuntu/ you don't have to worry about that since
the maintainer of that package checks this for you.

Apparently in openSuSE there is no such safety precaution.
