Understanding multi-lib conflicts in packages



I have a *long* list of i386+x86_64 multi-lib package conflicts in
Extras 7 here.

If two packages (one i386, the other x86_64) of the same name
are installed, which files can cause conflicts because no magic
inside RPM takes care of overriding files like executables?

Can %doc files cause a conflict?
I assume include files can cause a conflict.
I assume arch-independent data files can cause a conflict.
I assume executables in bindir/sbindir'n'friends don't cause
a conflict, because RPM lets the best arch win (or something like
that, right?)

A few examples. Are these false positives?
