I was just wondering the other day if those databases shouldn't be in

Depends. Are those databases only modified during package addition/removal? I.e. are they a direct mapping of other installed files? Or are these updated whenever the user performs other operations and therefore they might contain user data? If the former, they do not belong in var; if the later, they do.
