restorecon vs. setfiles



For some reason restorecon and setfiles have different notions of what
context certain files should be. For example:

# ls -Z /usr/lib/libz.*
-rwxr-xr-x+ root     root     system_u:object_r:lib_t /usr/lib/libz.a
lrwxrwxrwx+ root     root     system_u:object_r:lib_t /usr/lib/libz.so -> libz.so.1.2.1.1
lrwxrwxrwx  root     root     system_u:object_r:lib_t /usr/lib/libz.so.1 -> libz.so.1.2.1.1
-rwxr-xr-x  root     root     system_u:object_r:shlib_t /usr/lib/libz.so.1.2.1.1

# restorecon -v /usr/lib/libz.*
restorecon set context /usr/lib/libz.so->system_u:object_r:shlib_t
restorecon set context /usr/lib/libz.so.1->system_u:object_r:shlib_t

# setfiles -v /etc/security/selinux/file_contexts /usr/lib/libz.*
setfiles:  read 1450 specifications
setfiles:  labeling files under /usr/lib/libz.a
setfiles:  hash table stats: 1 elements, 1/65536 buckets used, longest chain length 1
setfiles:  labeling files under /usr/lib/libz.so
setfiles:  relabeling /usr/lib/libz.so from system_u:object_r:shlib_t to system_u:object_r:lib_t
setfiles:  hash table stats: 1 elements, 1/65536 buckets used, longest chain length 1
setfiles:  labeling files under /usr/lib/libz.so.1
setfiles:  relabeling /usr/lib/libz.so.1 from system_u:object_r:shlib_t to system_u:object_r:lib_t
setfiles:  hash table stats: 1 elements, 1/65536 buckets used, longest chain length 1
setfiles:  labeling files under /usr/lib/libz.so.1.2.1.1
setfiles:  hash table stats: 1 elements, 1/65536 buckets used, longest chain length 1
setfiles:  Done.

So, restorecon thinks that *.so files should be shlib_t, whereas
setfiles thinks they should be lib_t. Which one is right and why do they
disagree? I thought that they both get their context info from the same
place.

This is with policy-1.11.3-5 and policycoreutils-1.11-4.
