That's arguable.

The redhat-release package contains a file, /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources,
that sets up2date to use the default url.  The comment there says

   ### The default RHN (using "default" as the url means use the one in the
   ### up2date config file). This is required.

The actual sources are defined in the up2date config file,
/etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date, which is part of the up2date package.

Yes, there is a sample line allowing up2date to use yum as its
backend in the /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources file, but it's commented
