The following code is an effective workaround. It must be added after the core-image is inherited.

python () {

     d.setVar('PSEUDO_IGNORE_PATHS', result)

I was attempting an image build with Yocto Hardknott, and I ran into a chown problem during do_rootfs(). I
traced it down to ${WORKDIR}/intercept_scripts showing up in the PSEUDO_IGNORE_PATHS environment variable.

This commit made the change:
https://git.openembedded.org/openembedded-core/commit/meta/classes/image.bbclass?id=9463be2292b942a1072eea88881b9644e55aadb9

I continued down the rabbit hole until I got here:
https://git.openembedded.org/openembedded-core/tree/meta/lib/oe/package_manager/__init__.py#n173

Line 192 specifically is the smoking gun. The files are being copied from poky/scripts/postinst-intercepts
into the ${WORKDIR}/intercept_scripts directory and immediately failing when the copyFile utility attempts
to do a chown.

Is there any logical explanation for this? Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong? Is there a
workaround?
This should be fixed in master, the issue was triggered by a checkout 
owned by root/root:

http://git.yoctoproject.org/cgit.cgi/poky/commit/?id=eff192abe2ee43ebf981bafbb7fca8602ebdcf0c

Steve/Anuj: We'll likely want to backport that one.

Cheers,

Richard
