No idea what you mean by prefering users explicitly doing the right thing..
Trying to interpret it, it seems to contradict the purpose of these scripts in general, avoiding users having to explicitly take care of things that can be safely automized and handled automatically outside of spec files.
Requiring packagers to explictly do the right thing is not a good argument as you really wanna avoid the chance of human errors (which are the most common error of all) as much as possible.

brp-relink-symlinks was written long time ago and has been in production use since without any issues.

For "too magic", I'd rather think of it as doing it in the most reliable/correct fashion.

It would be far more constructive with comments about the scripts behaviour, purpose and how implemented rather than raising concerns based on false assumptions about the condition of.
