What is the rationale for these warnings and errors,
non-standard-[ug]id: useful for catching bad user/group ownership, most often

non-standard-dir-perm: useful for catching bad dir permissions, e.g. sgid bits
leaked to packages in some build setups, or accidentally otherwise bad perms.
Should probably be downgraded from error to warning though.
and why should the package avoid using them?
If they're intentional and correct, it shouldn't.
