Same result for bigger values, no result after swapping bytes:
-bash-4.4# rpm -q --querybynumber 0xF60A0000
error: rpmdb: header #4127850496 cannot be loaded -- skipping.
-bash-4.4# rpm -q --querybynumber 0x00000AF6
-bash-4.4# rpm -q --querybynumber 0xB270000
error: rpmdb: header #187105280 cannot be loaded -- skipping.
-bash-4.4# rpm -q --querybynumber 0x0000270B
