Thanks for the example use-case.

My personal favorite for the name so far is "noupdate", and quite clearly it should not be tied to %config because the use-cases for this thing are actually something quite different. It probably should behave differently when applied to %config though - it could contain precious user data that you'd want to backup in some cases, but eg the vagrant plugin case clearly is not such.

Other musings on the name subject: the content in this case acts as a seed only, but maybe %seed is too far fetched. Another related point is that these files are managed by something else than rpm, so %managed comes to mind, but then that sounds like something where the content would come entirely outside rpm, and that's not a packaging-time decision (or when it is, it's satisfied with %ghost)
