Package: fontconfig
Version: 2.13.0-4
Severity: normal

To reproduce: run piuparts on fontconfig or anything that it depends on.
I tested d-feet in a sid base tarball from earlier this week, in a
Debian 9 'stretch' virtual machine:

This can also be seen on piuparts.debian.org:

I think these .uuid files are created as a result of:

Either fontconfig or fontconfig-config should delete them from known
font directories during purge.
