Using zif deptree command to test, it seems that rpm-libs and rpm-python depends on lua.

Googling for rpm lua brought up this page from rpm's wiki which says

A fairly unknown feature of RPM is that it comes with an embedded Lua interpreter. This page attempts to document the possibilities of the embedded Lua. Note that Lua-support is a compile-time option, the following assumes that your RPM is was built using --with-lua option.

Lua is enabled in fedora's rpm package, so, unless it's disabled (that would break any package that uses lua in it's scripts) - you can't remove lua without removing "virtually everything". Not everything in fedora depends (directly or indirectly) on lua, but a lot of useful stuff, that you need on most systems, depends (directly or indirectly) on lua.
