That's likely not the result of lack of protection, but just of running
Rawhide. If you ran Rawhide through the period when dnf5 was made the
provider of /usr/bin/dnf , then you didn't automatically get dnf
installed back when you updated to the post-revert versions. This is by
design, or rather, it's unfortunate but it would be rather icky to try
and 'fix' it, so folks decided not to. You're expected to be able to do
'dnf5 install dnf' if you run Rawhide and want it back.
