Yes and No.  It is dependent on where you are getting the source
security updates from.  Some times it can come down all the way from
kernel.org > rh >CentOS.  Then at times the security problem never
effects kernel.org kernel.  There can be issues into play that upstream
introduced into the kernel itself from patchwork that will never get
into or see light of day to the kernel.org kernel.
