More interestingly, rpm itself doesn't own its own files either.

/usr/lib/sysimage/rpm/Conflictname
/usr/lib/sysimage/rpm/Dirnames
/usr/lib/sysimage/rpm/Enhancename

That is quite expected. I would not expect to lose the actual databases.
`rpm -e rpm` should not remove (what was once) /var/lib/rpm,
`rpm -e mariadb` should not remove /var/lib/mysql, and
`rpm -e postfix` should not delete my mails.
