An RPM which updates a previous version will change the user/group & 
permissions of any existing directory or file as it is instructed to.
I just tested it on CentOS 6 to verify:

1) RPM #1 installs /etc/test and file /etc/test/mytest.txt
    user/group = asterisk/asterisk, dir/file perms are 0750/0640

2) manually change user/group/perms of directory/file to
    something else

3) RPM #2 updates RPM #1. RPM #2 sets user/group to asterisk/asterisk
    and dir/file perms to 0750/0640. So it's back to the original
    settings from the spec file.

Not setting user/group ownership and permissions will make rpmbuild use 
defaults (iirc root:root for ownership, 755 perms for directories and 
644 perms for files).
