Err, not. Rpm remembers files that were skipped on purpose and does not 
whine about them on verification:

[root at turre ~]# rpm -U --excludedocs /tmp/telnet-0.17-53.fc17.x86_64.rpm
[root at turre ~]# rpm -V telnet
[root at turre ~]# rpm -ql --state telnet
normal        /usr/bin/telnet
not installed /usr/share/doc/telnet-0.17
not installed /usr/share/doc/telnet-0.17/README
not installed /usr/share/man/man1/telnet.1.gz
[root at turre ~]#
