setenforce 0
service snmpd start
setenforce 1

Starts snmpd but logs 3 policy violations

Feb  1 13:54:47 f4 kernel: audit(1138802087.074:6): avc:  
denied  { execmem } for  pid=8464 comm="snmpd" 
scontext=root:system_r:snmpd_t 
tcontext=root:system_r:snmpd_t 
tclass=process

Feb  1 13:54:47 f4 kernel: audit(1138802087.099:7): avc:  
denied  { read } for pid=8464 comm="snmpd" 
name="config" dev=dm-0 ino=13320608 
scontext=root:system_r:snmpd_t 
tcontext=system_u:object_r:selinux_config_t 
tclass=file

Feb  1 13:54:47 f4 kernel: audit(1138802087.099:8): avc:  
denied  { getattr } for  pid=8464 comm="snmpd" 
name="config" dev=dm-0 ino=13320608 
scontext=root:system_r:snmpd_t 
tcontext=system_u:object_r:selinux_config_t 
tclass=file

Note inode 13320608 is /etc/selinux/config

ls -Z /usr/sbin/snmpd
-rwxr-xr-x  root     root     system_u:object_r:snmpd_exec_t  
/usr/sbin/snmpd

Which on my limited understanding looks correct and I think means that
snmpd executes with a
custom policy indicated by the snmpd_exec_t bit.

Does this mean that there is a bug in the policy for snmpd defined by
the rpm
selinux-policy-targeted-1.17.30-3.19 ?
