Well... this bug description is pretty useless, because it's too vague.

- dovecot uses systemd for a long time now
- dovecot has systemd scripts in spec file that work and are well tested (not sure if it's exactly as packaging recommends - it was not available those days)
- dovecot uses tmpfiles.d

so from "bug description" I don't see any problem

and dovecot rpm does not contain sysv init script, so bug summary is not valid too.

Did you use correct component?

http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/rpminfo?rpmID=2544842 <--- shows /etc/rc.d/init.d/dovecot which should either be dropped or package separately according to the packagaging guidelines...

"SysV Initscripts
Packages may also provide a SysV initscript file, but are not required to do so. This format is considered legacy, but Fedora still contains init mechanisms such as upstart which do not support the systemd unit file format. If present, the SysV initscript(s) must go into an optional subpackage, so as not to confuse sysadmins. The guidelines for SysV initscripts can be found here: Packaging:SysVInitScript"

interesting, fix is in git since May 30th, but there was no build since. Building now
