Not really. On my Fedora 38 with updates,
`/etc/dnf/protected.d/dnf.conf` looks like this:
# DNF is obsoleted in Fedora 39 by DNF 5 and should no longer be
marked as protected.

# dnf
It's the result of an update on 05/23 (or just before) which
unprotected dnf, protected python3-dnf and with the following diff in
dnf related packages:



[Yes, I store this info redantly on purpose for easy diffing/splitting.]

Currently my dnf is at dnf-4.16.2-1.fc38.noarch, config is unchanged,
and it would happily remove itself. (I also installed dnf5 recently,
it didn't change that config and is not aliased.)
