texlive needs complete upgrade everytime the kernel is upgraded?

I sometimes install texlive on my Fedora 25, because I use it occasionally.

I've noticed that sometimes the entire list of all installed texlive packages will appear in the list of packages to upgrade by dnf upgrade. As this is hundreds, up to thousands of texlive packages (depending on which scheme is installed) and hundreds of MB, this is really annoying.

I've noticed that this correlates to kernel updates. It feels like everytime the kernel is upgraded, every single texlive package is also upgraded. I tend to remove my texlive installation when I notice this, because it tends to happen often. At least more often than I'd expect that many texlive packages to receive upgrades.

Can anyone reproduce this? Is this really genuine texlive upgrades? May this be a bug worth reporting?
