non-standard-[ug]id: useful for catching bad user/group ownership, most often
encountered with missing %defattr/%attr when built as non-root with rpmbuild
non-standard-dir-perm: useful for catching bad dir permissions, e.g. sgid bits
leaked to packages in some build setups, or accidentally otherwise bad perms.
Should probably be downgraded from error to warning though.

If they're intentional and correct, it shouldn't.
