If you remove the file from the %files section, then you also need to
remove it from the installed files in $RPM_BUILD_ROOT. You can do this
with a simple

rm $RPM_BUILD_ROOT%{_docdir}/invulgotracker/INSTALL

BTW: The docs should be versioned (invulgotracker-0.53), but you already
do this in the spec that is linked in your review. The rest is explained
in the private mails I just sent you before seeing this one.

It's just the generic install notes we usually don't ship.
