I noted that you didn't use 

  tar xvpf <file>

which could mean you lose some permission bits as specified in the tar
file ... which may also explain why su doesn't have the suid bit set.

In this case you may want to run the mtree against your host using the
specification files in /etc/mtree for each tarball you extracted and 
identify any differences:

  cd /etc/mtree
  mtree -Wep / -f <file>

If you're confident that mtree is finding everything, you can use

  mtree -Uep / -f <file>

to have it silently update any differences where it can.
