When it is being removed, the size reported is the total disk space used
by its files. However, when it is being installed, the size reported is
that of the RPM itself, which contains a compressed tarball of these
files - hence, being almost always being smaller in size than the sum of
the individual files as a whole.

Hope that helps.
