So from the documentation at 
http://ftp.rpm.org/max-rpm/s1-rpm-inside-files-list-directives.html I take that 
the file is neither packaged nor installed. Since it's not packaged, the RPM 
also doesn't carry a signature and we cannot write a signature out. If someone 
wants to write signatures out for %config files by activating the macro, he 
needs to be aware that these are mutable files and deal with the fact that 
their signature may get lost or end up being wrong. a %ghost file is then more 
or less a case of a %config file that will never have a signature written out.
