[root at linux etc]# rpm -qf /etc/grub2.cfg
[root at linux etc]# rpm -qf /etc/grub2-efi.cfg

...in other words, the grub2.cfg link is installed with the grub2-pc 
package and the grub2-efi.cfg link is created with the grub2-efi 
package.  You can probably get away without the grub2-efi package on a 
legacy bios system, but not the other way around, so an efi system will 
have both links.

At the end of the day it's harmless, don't loose any sleep over it.
