There's no direct tar -v equivalent but you can get the information from 
--fsmdebug output, eg

[root at sopuli rpm]# rpm -Uvv --fsmdebug 
tests/data/RPMS/hello-2.0-1.x86_64.rpm 2>&1|awk '/^D: create/ {split($9, 
fn, ";"); print fn[1]}'
[root at sopuli rpm]#

Whether that is fit to your purposes ... depends on your purposes :)
