This means that these differences between CentOS and Red Hat releases have existed in previous CentOS releases for different packages. Usually by the time someone who had a Red Hat Enterprise Linux subscriptions found the discrepancy, the package had been shipped and was considered permanent in CentOS. My understanding that other than by email communication or a manual audit, the only items that give a clue that something is not shipped are modules which in their build state tell the Module Build System what packages are to be included in the compose and which ones are to be filtered out.

It's very frustrating. "quota-devel" was my pet peeve, snce it's used
to build Samba with full doman controller features enabled. The
decisions to use these libraries for build dependencies inernal to Red
Hat, but not to publish them to subscrbiers or, now, to provide them
only in "Stream" is crazy making and will mess with library dependency
resolution when building packages which rely on those components.
