This service is provided by the RPM spec file distributed in the
"source RPM" (there's a parallel srpm for every binary rpm).

Sure, you need to learn to read the spec language, but I wouldn't
hesitate.  (YMMV, but note: I'm a Debian user, I don't know how to
read it myself.  I am sure it would be worth it if I found myself in
your shoes.)
