SELinux and RPM verification

Some days ago it was explained here that RPM packages do not include
the context information for the files it contains.  Rather it sets
context according to the current policy.

Occasionally "rpm --verify" puts a "C" in the list of attribute

    ........C c /root/.bash_logout

That bit isn't documented in the manual page for RPM.  My assumption
was that it meant that the context differed from what the package

But if the package doesn't say what the context should be, then what
does it mean?
