Exactly. That's how I have done clamav packaging for years.

%post scriptlet has

if [ $1 -eq 1 ]; then
    systemctl start freshclam.service >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
endif

So freshclam is run immediately from package install making sure
databases are there before anybody has time to even think starting
clamd.
