Perhaps the tool looks for the string RHEL.
My recollection is that when IBM PC's were fairly new,
IBM used that trick with some of its software.
To work around that, some open source developers used the string "not IBM".
I think this was pre-internet, so google might not work.

If it's worth the effort, you might make another "CentOS" distribution,
but call it "not RHEL".
