[CentOS] CUPS not generating a printcap file

According to all of the documentation I can find, an /etc/printcap file
(or whatever filename is specified with the Printcap directive) is
generated by cupsd ever time a printer is added or removed. On all of my
CentOS 6.7 systems, this is NOT happening. I can restart cups and add or
remove printers over and over and it still doesn't generate the printcap

Is this a known issue, or is there some way that CentOS is blocking this
from happening?
