I think you would need to define a domain transition from the user's
domain type (let's say user_t) to a new domain (let's say user_rpm_t)
upon executing rpm_exec_t so that rpm will run in that domain, and then
define a domain transition back from user_rpm_t to user_t upon executing
shell_exec_t so that rpm scriptlets will run in user_t. Or you could
define a user_rpm_script_t domain for that purpose. If you define a
domain transition, it will use that instead of using rpm_script_t. But
you not only need rpm scriptlets to run in a different domain; you also
need rpm itself to run in a different domain if you want to prevent the
user from overwriting arbitrary files.
