as Karl said, this seems to be a Fedora only issue.

Furthermore, I am suprised about this:

Do you mean *using* the .sty file and running a tex file using it
installs R packages? I looked into the sty file and only saw R code
being executed of the form
On my system this does *not* automatically install anything, but gives
an error if knitr is not installed.

OTOH, if the *Fedora package* (rpm) depends on R packages, then this is
the correct way to satisfy dependencies. This is how *every* package
manager works.
