What do you suggest as alternative? Now owning such directories would
a) leave them behind upon package removal and b) create them with
wrong permissions in case of a restrictive umask.

As a similar example, Red Hat's "perl" package should own several
directories, e.g. vendor install dirs. There's an old bug report about
it somewhere in bugzilla. But it doesn't get fixed.

Sorry, your package should own those directories.
