No, it shouldn't:

[root at www2 conf]# rpm -qc yum|grep conf

And in the spec file:

%config(noreplace) %{_sysconfdir}/yum.conf

But centos-yumconf did (until Sep 14, 2004) just link
/etc/centos-yum.conf to /etc/yum.conf.

Is that, what you're seeing?

I have my own yumconf package with a preposterously high Epoch - 10.
So yum won't install centos-yumconf over my package :)
