Clearly the values are not paying attention to the requested
type of UUID.

In fact, I forgot what I implemented (it has been 9 months or so):

[jbj@wellfleet wdj]$ rpm -q --qf '%{NAME:uuid}\n' bash
a5fade4e-633c-5167-af10-a4717c701159
[jbj@wellfleet wdj]$ rpm -q --qf '%{NAME:uuid(v3)}\n' bash

[jbj@wellfleet wdj]$ rpm -q --qf '%{NAME:uuid(v4)}\n' bash
dd73dd05-2bdb-495a-a61c-e81ef0963bc6
[jbj@wellfleet wdj]$ rpm -q --qf '%{NAME:uuid(v5)}\n' bash
a5fade4e-633c-5167-af10-a4717c701159
[jbj@wellfleet wdj]$ rpm -q --qf '%{NAME:uuid(v4)}\n' bash
