If you start a process in your %post, then you need to clean up after
yourself at the end of %post

How do you know what's relevant?  Packaging policy states (for reasons
including this one) that services shouldn't be started in the %post of a
package install.  Which means that it's something you're starting
yourself.  Which means you need to kill it off also.
