When you use restorecon you have one centralised database. We will discuss if rpm will automaticaly run restorecon on all installed files.

Not only that, but a new policy may well change some labels to fix
errors, and make the package content obsolete. And even dangerous if the
package maintainer forgets to update it and on a yum update you get back
the old broken label.
