I know that there's various hooks/triggers that an RPM packager can take advantage of, but are there any for a site administrator can, so that (for example) a script can be run before and after package XYZ is updated?

You'd have to do this with a dnf plugin. There is a "yum-plugin-post-transaction-actions" but this has not been ported to dnf. will get you started if you want to write one. If not, you should file an RFE against dnf-plugins-extras on bugzilla.

You can use/abuse the scriptles in your package-xyz.spec file.

So with scriptles, you can control how the rpm will behavoir when installed, removed or updated.
