But why does it say that? What's the point?

Supposing /usr/lib/boo *does* ecist on the build system. The directory won't get
created in the buildroot then. Looks horribly wrong to me.

If you've specified a buildroot in your spec file (as you must), it'll be
honoured whether you build it as a regular user or as root. But no sane person
builds packages as root.
