You're running the 32-bit AltArch build of CentOS?

The /etc/centos-release is owned by the centos-release package, and
the contents will be updated when you update that pacakge.  A reboot
won't change that.  In the default x86_64 release, I think that you'd
need to pull updates from the CR repo to get the 7.2.1511 packages,
