Not really, no. The default license for spec files in Fedora is MIT.
That means that if the package maintainer didn't chose any license
explicitly, then the spec file is MIT.
Some package maintainers do choose to use another licence for their
spec files, for example "php-smbclient" is under the CC-By-SA-4.0
Make sure you check every spec file you use if they have an explicit
license (this should usually be obvious, as a comment in the very first
lines of the spec file), and if you can't find anything, then you can
assume the spec file is MIT.
