I wrote a little script that lists all orphan packages that don't belong to the given groups. Running it as shown below gets me pretty close to what I was looking for.

python "Fedora Workstation" "Anaconda Tools"

The script can be found here:

Yeah, I'm looking for 3 without 2, but they appear to be marked the same. rpmorphan -all -install-time -XX looked promising, where XX was the number of days since installation. However, it appears to count the most recent update for a package as its install time.

Is there a way to get a list of packages that were explicitly installed after installation?

The best solution I can find is dnf history userinstalled, but the output on my system includes hundreds of packages that I haven't installed. Even when looking at the packages that are common between that command and package-cleanup --leaves --all, there are 200+ supposedly user installed leaf packages on my system. Packages like cheese and bluez-cups that were installed with the Fedora Workstation installer are still in the list.
