%verify(not size,not md5) %config(noreplace) %attr(0640,root,named) /etc/rndc.conf
%verify(not size,not md5) %config(noreplace) %attr(0640,root,named) /etc/rndc.key

(those lines in the bind SPEC file should have only replaced files that
are not changed for rndc.conf and rndc.key)

Do you maybe have the caching-nameserver RPM installed on an active DNS
box that is used for zone control?
