Aha! This is a bug in cygport.

(There's some code which skips over doing this for the first item in 
PKG_NAMES, assuming that is always the same as PN, which has already 
been done)

Thanks for drawing that to my attention. I'll look into fixing it, but 
for the moment it seems you can workaround the bug by ensuring that the 
package with premove/postinstall scripts isn't first in that list, i.e.:

- PKG_NAMES="libopenh264 libopenh264-headers"
+ PKG_NAMES="libopenh264-headers libopenh264"
