The manpage would indicate that the rnupath is only valid for the library
for which it has been set:

The runtime linker uses a prescribed search path for locating the
dynamic dependencies of an object. The default search paths are
therunpath recorded in the object, followed by /usr/lib for 32-bit
objects or /usr/lib/64 for 64-bit objects. This latter component can
be modified using a configuration file created with crle(1). The
runpath is specified when the dynamic object is constructed using the
-Roption to ld(1). LD_LIBRARY_PATH can be used to indicate directories
to be searched before the default directories.
