There are a couple of things here that should be discussed more broadly,
1. you seem to be packaging stuff into /snap which is outside the FHS
guidelines, On fedora [1] they are using /var/lib/snapd/snap

Are this files in /var/lib/snapd included in the RPM filelist, or
created at runtime?
In the former case, /var is a really bad idea, as this contains
variable data (FHS) and if you provide something with RPM, it's clearly
static and will break snapshots, rollback and transactional-update.

They are snaps downloaded and managed at runtime. They are not static or
included in the RPM file list.

2. Normally on openSUSE we don't allow packages to enable there service
in %post in favor of the system administrator doing it, snap is a bit
different from most standard services though so maybe its worth an
exception but we should discuss that on this list.

If something should be enabled by default, it belongs to the
systemd-preset-branding package for that product, never into the
%pre/%post installs. There is really no valid reason to do or allow

openSUSE has the same %systemd_{preun,post,postun} macros that respect
presets from upstream systemd, right? So the package can be changed to use
those and whatever is needed to update the branding package can be done to
enable the services.
