Well, you can be sure it won't happen if you don't bind mount /sys,

Nah, you can need those.

If the package requires them to install, then it will not work when you are trying to install to a foreign system since if it is not running, it has no /proc, /dev, and /sys, and any one that is provided would belong to the installing system, not the system being installed to, so the package would end up manipulating the wrong system.
