See the other messages.  We have no facility to ensure that the binaries
used in generation of the initrd during kernel build have matching srpms
always available during the time that the kernel binary is available.
We have no facility to even guarantee that the binaries used to generate
the initrd at build time will ever be actually shipped, if say kernel
was built at 0800, then say plymouth was built at 1600, and rawhide
composed at 2000 you'd never actually publish the plymouth binary that
went into the initrd, let alone the srpm to match it.
