Unless you have an exclude=php* or exclude=php53 in your
CentOS-Base.repo, you likely have already upgraded.

The php53 rpms in the updates directory are
php53-5.3.3-1.el5_6.1.src.rpm wich is newer than the version that is in
testing (php53-5.3.3-1.el5.src.rpm)

If you do this, you can see which version is installed:

rpm -qa php53\*

You will likely see packages with "el5_6.1" in the name.
