Which is wrong. RPM is checking the checksum of that file, and the checksum
is not lying. This users did modify this file, maybe not implicit, but
then by using YaST and making changes to it. Like configuring NIS.
If you don't exactly know what you are doing does not mean that you are
not doing it.

But if other setup routines change it, the user don't know it.

My System installed with 20200211 - the original version was:
# ls -l
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1189 24. Jan 14:14 /etc/nsswitch.conf
# ls -lc
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1189 8. Feb 17:03 /etc/nsswitch.conf

The last modified date was before installation!!!

So seams that checksum was wrong or change date.
