rpm --setperms sudo on a fedora 29 fresh installation sets /usr/bin/sudo's permissions to 0777; i confirmed it by reinstalling sudo using dnf, which will correctly set the permissions to 4111 and then rerunning rpm --setperms sudo will change it back to 0777.

on fedora 28 rpm --setperms sudo behaves normally and correctly and sets the permissions of sudo binary to 4111.

was there a change in fedora 29 in this regard? is this to be expected? or it's a bug with sudo package or something else?

    Lack of setuid could be due to using capabilities instead (haven't checked, suexec fooled me that way), but yeah, it pretty certainly shouldn't be a+w. – Ulrich Schwarz Apr 20 at 18:10
