Funnily enough, I pointed out the exact same thing a week or two ago.
The response was that this group is no longer used and the packages
are instead included in the base root - except that clearly isn't
what actually happens.

They exist, at least on aarch64 and armv5tel (RedSleeve), so it is
a virtual certainty they are there on c7 armhf. What you need is:
and make a dummy empty repository out of it:
createrepo -g comps.xml .

Add that path to that repo to your mock repositories, and all will
start working just fine.

Interesting, they are missing on armhf, but they are there on
aarch64. :-/
