Sure it's no problem for the spec file to ignore them but I'm wondering
if they are valuable for testing won't others find them useful too? If
so shouldn't we keep them and add a man page?

Right now we don't have a "tools" subpackage, this is common for other
large packages. A tools subpackage contains useful commands for admins
and developers which are not necessary for running the basic package.
Perhaps 3.0 is a good time to introduce a tools package and move some of
this stuff into tools making it an optional install. This would also
bring freeradius in line with other packages. Comments?
