[CentOS] Excluding file systems from autorelabel

I'm trying to find a way to exclude file systems during the autorelabel process.  I have a file system (/exports) that has tens of millions of files on it and I *know* I don't want it relabeled.

I've tried semanage fcontext -a -t "<<none>>" "/exports(/.*)?" and it seems to insist on relabeling that file system.  I also tried to see if there was a /.autorelabel_exclude option as I saw some patches but can't seem to find indication of them anywhere (perhaps I missed it).  I really need to make sure that I can exclude these massive directories if at all possible.

Any help?
