We don't know. Red Hat has only mentioned RHEL 6. When vulnerabilities
are found in CentOS 5 which they consider not be important enough to
fix they usually mention that in the errata.

According to upstream the bug was introduced in glibc 2.6 so if CentOS
5 has 2.5 then it might be just enough too old.

Not affected so no fix sounds most plausible.
