As part of my build process I disable repos like that (and others that
insert themselves in /etc/yum.repos.d) by echoing in during kickstart
the line reposdir=/etc/yum.repos.d/custom to yum.conf.

That way if I do have a need of a repo I can pop the file in there...
but meanwhile updates that pop a .repo file in /etc/yum.repos.d have
no effect on my systems.

Could similar work for you without having to rebuild centos-release ?
