These sort of questions come from the FUD created by the silly people. 
In order to convert a source package to a binary package, you need to 
hit rpmbuild at some stage or the other, the environment it churns in 
can impact the result and these days convention in the 
rhel/fedora/centos areas is to use mock and a defined common buildroot.

The idea of magic juice used by CentOS is not only stupid its also what 
leads you into believing a lot of the other crap that these people 
shovel out.
