Without being involved in the headware-based distros, my guess is that
the packages likely strip the binaries in question before stuffing them
into the rpm files[1].  Is there a difference if you run file(1) on the
.so files in question?

    where the debug symbols are stripped out and placed in a seperage -dbg
