Do you do this as the 'user' or as root?
If you do it as 'user', then it usually don't have write right to the rpmdb,
and if you do have the package installed as root too on the system, then it
would show where root did install it. Remember that the -i option don't remove
packages (yous should use -F or -U for that).
Another option that may make things to show up as you want is the --badreloc
not sure if any of these are relevant or will do anything for your problem.
