Not sure what you mean exactly by what's the point of having RPMs? If 
you have multiple servers/sites then you can still deploy WP via a RPM 
or package management or if you have that many servers you should be 
using config tools like Puppet, so you could deploy the latest via such 
a tool.

But the same thing applies, you do the updating/upgrading of WP via the 
WP web-console, or at least you will need to at some stage. I think the 
latest version offers an automated security update feature now anyway.
