You try and avoid that. ;)
We discussed this at length on the Fedora Devel list some months
ago. I'm trying to remember the exact decision we came down to, but
I think that all of the "best" solutions involved carrying certain
virtual Provides: in the fedora-release-$PRODUCTNAME packages and
using the new rich dependencies in RPM to do something like:
Requires: foo-config-default or foo-config-server or foo-config-cloud
Requires: not fedora-release-server or foo-config-server
Requires: not fedora-release-cloud or foo-config-cloud
So packages would be able to ship different default configuration sets
based on which (if any) of the known Products were installed.
This kind of fell off my radar and I need to pull in Panu and Jan (as
well as the FPC) about coming up with a plan here.

Can firewalld just add them conditionally somehow ? Or detect
cockpit somehow and dynamically add them?

I suppose rolekit could make these changes when it enables roles?

You should not and cannot change files in other packages from your
package, thats just a bad idea.

Yeah, I think we are all still theoretical? Or did we put in an
initial kickstarts? We should do that soon...
