Bug#192422 is showing that specs without %build can trigger unexpected
behaviour.  The bug reporter did know what he was doing, he just didn't
know that rpm had a bug in it that prevented it from working as
expected.

No, bug #192422 is showing that without %build a debuginfo package
will not be built.  This is totally _expected_ behavior.

See: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=192422#c11


So it's better to anticipate that there might be other unexpected things
when shipping without %build (either there now or added in the future
when the rpm maintainer decides: debuginfos do it this way, I might as
well make feature X do it that way as well) rather than letting
everything work for the trivial cases we're dealing with now and then
suddenly expose another bug somewhere down the road.

You are working off the false premise that there is unexpected
behavior in rpm.  I am very highly doubtful that the rpm source code
is so pathetically bad that no body really knows what might happen
when certain things are added or removed from spec files.  LOL.
