Marco is right though. The package name is not the same for the
normal i586 package and the 32bit one. Therefore the automatic
provides are different and the %name(x86-32) one is basically
useless.

The regular package would provide

%name(x86-32) = %version-%release

while the -32bit version basically has

%name-32bit(x86-32) = %version-%release

So what's missing is the original name with architecture. In the
concrete case of alsa-plugins-pulse-32bit it provides only
alsa-plugins-pulse-32bit(x86-32)
instead of
alsa-plugins-pulse(x86-32)

It's not missing. It also does not provide "alsa-plugins-pulse" and
you're not arguing that the provides is missing.

(The color-extended self provides really don't make much sense for
suse systems, they only got added by Fedora because they have multiple
packages with the same name and different arch installed and had
no way to address the specific architecture.)
