well presumably someone who installed debuginfo packages wants them to
be useful and not updated separately from the rest of the distro

It's very annoying to install debuginfo packages with the aim to produce
a nice stack for upstream, and find out when you actually manage to
trigger the bug debuginfo packages are out of sync and yum happily
updated the rest of the system without taking them into account
