No, but it would involve (down-)loading repository metadata for
all packages in the dep-chain, which would make the operation take
quite longer than a typical rpmlint run takes so far.

Without that it could only warn about missing sub-directories, e.g.
as here:

%files
[...]
%{_datadir}/%{name}/%{name}*.png
%{_mandir}/man1/%{name}
