Is this a packaging "miss" for the F33 Cloud OpenStack QCOW image? Or a "feature" new to Fedora 33...and if so, should I adjust my automation to move to a more distro agnostic method, like probing and parsing /etc/os-release within images?

I did some overhaul of the cloud kickstarts in the following PR:

but I don't really think there is anything in there that stands out.
This is probably related to the switch of the rpm database in F33 to sqlite:
