As far as I understand the change you are likely to introduce, this won't
have any impact on the above packages.
rkhunter updates its property database when the unhide and unhide.rb
packages are installed, and does only need the files are installed, it
doesn't care about the status of the dependencies.
My answer is hence "no" for these packages.
