I have come to understand that for yum, commands like clean only applies to
the actual buildroot. So without a -r argument, the cleaning is done on the
default root, whatever this might be(?).

Actually, there is probably nothing wrong with this - it works fine when
using the -r option. Problems comes without it, when one thinks it applies
to all buildroots. It would perhaps make sense outputting something like
"Using buildroot foo" when there is no -r on the command line(?).
