That's done by the rpm-spec-initialize function, which is a hook in
the rpm-spec-mode-new-file-hook, which is called when you open a blank
file in RPM mode.  By default, files ending in .spec are edited in RPM

No, I don't see a similar c-mode-new-file-hook -- which is what sent
me down the path of answering this for you -- not because I am
particularly adept at customizing Emacs, I was just intrigued by the
thought of adding my own c-mode-new-file-hook.

Hopefully somebody more expert than I will step in and say, "No --
it's right there!"
