All depends on what you want to emphasize in the comparison.

E.g. man pages are generated and cached and none is
asking for support from RPM for handling "ownership"
and integrity of the generated man pages. The ached aspects
of __pycache__ aren't that different (but are executable so
the audit is more complex than for data files).
