Would redhat packaging policy allow the package scripts to instead
create e.g. modules.rpmnew/ and stuff its files under there
instead?  (My hopes aren't high.)

Sounds like the job of a main config file directive, e.g. ignore_suffixes=

That way it could appear right before the INCLUDE line in the
configuration file so it's right out there in the open.

Not that I'm volunteering :-)
