[opensuse-packaging] RPM does not detect installed but unpackaged directories


When a directory (without a file inside) is installed,
RPM does not detect when it is not in the %files list.

When a directory with a file inside is installed, RPM detects
only the installed but unpackaged file and reports
"Installed (but unpackaged) file(s) found: /path/to/file".

I like to know the reasoning behind why RPM does not care about
installed but unpackaged (empty) directories.
