Using `dnf` to compare filesystem contents with repositories

Following a trail of one bug, I've discovered that my bsdtar utility is 0 length.

# ls -l `which bsdtar`
-rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 0 Feb  3 19:47 /usr/bin/bsdtar

Perhaps long ago a mistake in pipe command that was run under sudo, overwrote it. Or maybe filesystem failure.

With dnf provides I can figure out that the package name is bsdtar and reinstall it, but I'd like to check if files in other installed packages became corrupted too. Is it possible to do this with dnf?
