"installp -l -d . rte or bff " would list the files inside the rte or bff.

Also try the other way if needed:

If you have a file and want to know which package it might be in issue

lslpp -w /full/path/to/file

minis2008,

your original question was "How do I check what files are GOING TO BE installed on the system and where from Packages like RTE AND BFF's?"
 
And you changed your question to "already installed" and provided your own answer and accepting your own answer, hmmm  ...  great.

Also if you issue bffcreate -C all bff files will be renamed to their original package name.
