Are there any RPM macros one should use when packaging software
installed with a prefix /opt/foo?

Just don't package stuff in /opt please. Depending on how one looks
at it, it was either a misguided idea from the past or we can't
handle it properly. In any case nowadays installing to /opt breaks
expectations wrt rollbacks etc.

Out of curiosity, what expectations it breaks?

By default /opt is separate subvolume and so is not rolled back nor has
any it snapshot schedule by default (so no comparison of previous state

So what? Not everyone uses subvolumes and snapshots.
And the defaults are just a defaults, they exist to be customized.
