They don't really do different things to the rpm database.

yum erase/remove will ALSO solve for and remove dependencies (other 
things that need to be removed that depend on the packages you want to 

HOWEVER ... yum is nothing more than a depsolver and front end that uses 
rpm to do it's actions, so it is NOT different that rpm -e (it uses rpm 
-e) when removing files.
