Any suggestions on this will be helpful.
Why do you think you need the files installed by the RPM package be
owned by an arbitrary UID configurable at install time? You'd have to
describe your particular use case in more details, but I think it's
enough to have the files deployed via RPM owned by root and
world-readable and create any UID-specific files at runtime.
What you described so far doesn't sound like a job for RPM.

oppression to develop psychic muscles.
