Well, the purpose of this package isn't to provide any package to be
used, but rather preparing for the QA test with the latest kernel.

maybe you are thinking about
kernel-obs-qa.spec that has BuildRequires: kernel-obs-build

So I don't think we need too much hack for the reproducible builds.
It needs triggering after each build, after all.

https://build.opensuse.org/project/prjconf/openSUSE:Factory has
VMinstall: kernel-obs-build

so this is used in every OBS build. It is also published to the normal
download.o.o repos, so even if nobody uses it, it wastes mirror
bandwidth to publish unchanged rebuilds. [1] has general background.

Oh well, it's a pure waste of resource to publish this.
The OBS build uses it because it's the base of kernel-obs-* QA.
But it's no normal package to be installed on users.
