The -devel is a sub-package, *but* it doesn't contain any library.

It contains only a symbolic link to a file contained within the
main package. A symlink only to be used during compile-time.

The paragraph you quoted refers to real library files which shall enter
the dynamic linker's search cache.

I recommend the paragraph is rewritten:

  "MUST: Every binary RPM package, which stores shared library files
  (and not just symbolic links) in any of the dynamic linker's default
  paths, must call ldconfig in %post and %postun.

The symlink is included in the -devel package.
