There are many package changes, but it is all still EL4.  2-4 times a
year the upstream provider releases and update set, and they number the
update sets ... they current set is EL4 update 2.  SO ...

Here is a CentOS FAQ on the subject:

Hopefully this answer's everyone's questions about the CentOS numbering system (schema).

Disclaimer:

Please see the below FAQ entry concerning CentOS and it's relationship
with the upstream provider ... in a nutshell, there is none ... and
CentOS is built from publicly available open source SRPMS ... and CentOS
is not affiliated in any way with the upstream provider or their
software:
