Please explain why RPM shouldn't be used when it's there?
The Linux (rpm)package is not dist-specific AFAIK and RPM is installed

I've never before seen or used RPM in Debian so I thought it was
interesting to give it a try, of course I used *rpm -i --test <package>*
just to se the outcome without actually installing.
