I am not sure to correctly understand your question. Anyway. RPM(or any
package manager IMHO) is not so useful for executing something in general,
but yes sometime can be useful to have a configuration rpm.

I have written iirc a toy tool for this, it is on github.

I attach  an example - more complex of your - that create, in particular, a
table. The principal point is execute the action in the %pre stanza and
abort if the action(s) fail.

Hope this help
