CentOS absolutely does not support this.

If you do not install all updates, then you may be creating a setup that
adds problems (some of them security issues that you create).

CentOS uses a staged build system, meaning packages built today rely on
packages built yesterday, and so on.

If you are using a glibc from 3 updates ago with other packages from
now, you are not using a tested configuration and it is not at all clear
what issues will be introduced.  The only recommended install set it all
updates installed.

Doing anything else introduces risk.
