how to exclude some files of Automatic Dependency detection ?

We create a package for a server/client system. The server can provide plugins (.so) to the clients
for download via http.
So this means: our server rpm installs the downloadable .so files, but it will never use them itself.
(e.g. a server on RHEL serves plugins which have been compiled on/for openSuse)

How can I define in the .spec file that rpmbuild does not check these files for Automatic Dependency detection ?
(Note: I know "AutoReqProv: no" but I have lots of other files in the server package, so a globally
disabled autoreqprov is nothing I want)

Best regards/Schöne Grüße
