Maybe I can get a quick answer here - the current upgrade, from

Now, I need to poweroff this server - they're doing power work in the data
center in the morning. Opinions on whether I can just kill that fixfiles,
or do I have to let it run (and this is a home directory and backup server,
so it takes for-bloody-ever to run)?

You can poweroff the machine. The only risk is that you will have a
mislabeled file. Most labels would only effect /usr and /var.
If you want to make sure everything is labeled correctly after the machine
comes back, you can run
fixfiles restore &
And just let it run. This basically will check every file on disk and correct
any labels that do not match the default. If you have have large disks with a
huge amount of files on them, you could mount the disk with a context mount
and then Fixfiles would ignore the partitions.
