I'm not an expert, but it sure looks like the policy for fetchmail is
not allowing access to user home directories.  Of course, that would
be a mistake since fetchmail is defined as needing to read
~/.fetchmailrc .

In the past, I have had good luck reading the fedora-selinux-list
mailing list: https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/fedora-selinux-list .

I don't see anything related to fetchmail back to August on that list.
You might try posting your question to that list.
