Yes they can // well, yes and no.

You agreed to an EULA that says you will not distribute things that you
get from that paid subscription.  You can do it, and be in violation of
the terms of your subscription.

Then, you could lose said subscription privileges.  You could modify it
for your own use though.

The CentOS team would never distribute anything in that manner. Or allow
it to be distributed on CentOS.org machines/services.
