Well, if I just run audit2why again, it always tells me the same thing. However, I have now discovered that if I unset allow_ypbind, and then reset it to 1, audit2why then says 

type=AVC msg=audit(1496768649.872:1338): avc:  denied  { name_connect } for  pid=2413 comm="dbus-daemon" dest=111 scontext=system_u:system_r:system_dbusd_t:s0-s0:c0.c1023 tcontext=system_u:object_r:portmap_port_t:s0 tclass=tcp_socket

	Was caused by:
		Unknown - would be allowed by active policy
		Possible mismatch between this policy and the one under which the audit message was generated.

		Possible mismatch between current in-memory boolean settings vs. permanent ones.
