Packages depending on Python will place some info files in /usr/lib{64}/python3.x/site-packages/. If you still have /usr/lib{64}/python3.5/site-packages, meaning that you may need to rebuild that package against Python 3.6.0 and the files will be moved to /usr/lib{64}/python3.6/site-packages/.

Happy rebuilding and Happy New Year 2017
