The files are marked with %lang() (similarly to e.g. glibc-common locales).
If you are too concerned about disk space, you can just select different
languages instead of all in rpm configuration (e.g. override
%_install_langs in ~/.rpmmacros).
Older RH distributions used to do that, I think since RHL9 the default
is all, since the confusion it created (people installing say en and de
language support only and then wondering why they cannot use italian)
overweighted the disk space savings for average disk sizes these days.
