Bug Description

On Ubuntu 19.04 (amd64):

Removing fonts-liberation2 (2.00.5-1) ...
dpkg: warning: while removing fonts-liberation2, directory '/usr/share/fonts/truetype/liberation2' not empty so not removed
Removing fonts-opensymbol (2:102.10+LibO6.2.2-0ubuntu2) ...
dpkg: warning: while removing fonts-opensymbol, directory '/usr/share/fonts/truetype/openoffice' not empty so not removed

ls -a against these directories shows there's still .uuid files in there which dpkg -S is unaware of.
