I don't think so, yet.
The policy packages install under /usr/share/selinux/$SELINUXTYPE.
Looks like some packages are installing
under /usr/share/selinux/packages/$PACKAGENAME, e.g. BackupPC is putting
its module .pp file there.
The recent semanage permissive support is dynamically creating
permissive domain modules under /var/lib/selinux but those are just
temporary files I think to generate a .pp file and install it - they
don't need to keep the .te file around afterward.
