os-release has been at /7/ since the first CentOS 7 release - what extra
value does having 7.1 in there bring ? At best it just says that your
centos-release rpm has not been updated and/or there is no system level
state change that required metadata in that file.

Note that any CentOS machine, updated to the same point in time,
regardless of where and how it was privisioned should give you the same
functional package set. This is an important thing.
