I do not see the issue yet - the subvolume mounted as /opt ought to have
the same hierarchy level as /usr and /var so that it gets included in
snapshots (read: if it does not, it better should).

/opt is for ISVs and they can write user data there, like databases.
You don't want to loose changes to that data during rollback.

But doesn't the status quo mean you can have a situation where the RPM
database and the reality of /opt are two very different things?

Yes, as for any other subvolume.
