That seems entirely unnecessary and pointlessly complex. As there doesn't seem to be any support for /etc/selinux/fixfiles_exclude_dirs in any production release of CentOS, the simplest option is to add "noauto" to the fstab entry for the volume and mount it after sysinit, possibly in rc.local. Perhaps that seems less onerous to me than it does to other people. I mount my "home" and backup filesystems after boot so that I don't need to store the encryption keys in order to allow unattended boot.
