Neither is explicitly said on any other linux distro: it is experience coming
from building rpms that span across distros and releases.
If you type rpm -qa --scripts on a running (failrly recent) rpm based distro
you'll notice how little scripting is going on: mostly on core packages where
the target is well defined.

That's the scope foe the %file description, unless you're not creating an
sdk/library in which case other rules apply. And yes none of these "rules" are
documented (as far I know): it is just experience.
