/etc/webapps/roundcubemail/config/ has the owner root:root permissions rw-rw-r.
This file likely contains passwords for database access that should not be readable by unprivileged users.
I propose to change the permissions according to the model of e.g. the nextcloud webapp package:
config/ and its contents will be owned by http:http and others will have no (read) permissions on

Steps to reproduce:
- install the package
This task depends upon

That file does not appear to be packaged at all, it is probably just inheriting the default umask when the user creates it, and remains readable because of the directory permissions of /etc/webapps/roundcubemail/.

I'm also unsure why the package ignores the UID/GID database and creates several packaged directories which are later chown'ed to http:http in post_install ...

You're right. That file is not in the package. I likely copied it from the sample file, which has the same permissions.
I am not sure how to proceed here. This file is needed so each user will have to create it.
The owner/group settings prevent it from being directly usable with the default webserver user without setting read access for others or extra permissions via setfacl.
