There is *always* a potential mismatch between a git repo and the
source actually used for building an RPM. SRPM's also have a gpg
signature, git repos do not, and establishing provenance can be
adventuresome. So can setting up the variety of git epos, along with
the source tarballs, to assemble in a local compilation environment
for local rpmbuild or mock.

So can stunning foolishness like the Fedora SRPM for chromium, which
includes specific source files in the SRPM only if compiled on a
specific operating system. I just noticed trying to backport Chromium
87 to CentOS 7.
