Use containerized Yum command to install apps on Host

Hello everyone.
Is it possible to have a containerized yum command line for installing apps on the host machine. If yes, how do I go about it.

Do you mind to explain how this should work? Yum requires access to a bunch of files and folders spread over the os and it will write to whatever the targetfolders of the yum packages will be. Though, what might make sense is to create an image that downloads a specific rpm package along with all its dependencies.
