Why do /boot/efi content always show up in rpm -Va output in UEFI enabled system?

Solution Unverified - Updated -

Issue

  • The mode of the file (/boot/efi/EFI/BOOT/BOOTX64.EFI) is different from the Vendor default.
  • Neither rpm --setperms shim-x64-12-1.el7.x86_64 nor yum reinstall shim-x64-12-1.el7.x86_64 fixes it.
[root@test ~]# rpm -Va | grep '^.M'
