I don't believe so, but I've never researched what they do upstream. It
seems logistically difficult to build and prelink a binary while making
a RPM from a gut instinct point of view.

I think your list is, as you guess, a set of victims that don't fit due
to a prelink. I usually only use that command on server systems and
don't see a lot of those entries.
