Creation of directories via tmpfiles.d directly after package installation

That's not the way to do it. You should create the directory via the
normal RPM methods for including a directory --- that is, make the
directory in the install root and include it in the %files list.

What tmpfiles.d is for is to cause such directories to be recreated
after a system reboot.

Yes, it's an ugly kluge. I don't know why tmpfiles.d needs its own
configuration instead of just looking at the RPM metadata. But hey,
making extra work for packagers is standard practice ...
