Both should work.

/usr/sbin/restorecon is a file-provides of the policycoreutils package
/sbin/restorecon is an explicit provides of the policycoreutils package

# rpm -qlp policycoreutils-2.4-13.fc24.x86_64.rpm \
  | grep sbin/restorecon

# rpm -q --provides -p policycoreutils-2.4-13.fc24.x86_64.rpm \
  | grep sbin/restorecon

=> Likely, something is broken with the depchecker used to generated the 
reports above.
