[CentOS] Replacing kernel-headers with custom compiled version (from kernel.org) - safe?

Hello CentOS users,

Currently I have compiled kernel version 4.19.37, which the source is from kernel.org. I compiled the kernel by following
- get the kernel tarball and unpack it
- install prerequisties as described in https://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/Custom_Kernel (in addition bc and openssl-devel)
- copy the kernel configuration:
   $ cp /boot/config-3.10.0-957.21.3.el7.x86_64 ~/linux-4.19.37/.config
- create configuration:
   $ cd ~/linux-4.19.37
   $ make olddefconfig
   $ make nconfig
- compile and create RPM package:
   $ make vmlinux
   $ make modules
   $ make rpm-pkg
- install kernel RPM:
   # yum install ~/rpmbuild/RPMS/x86_64/kernel-*.rpm

However, in the last step (installing kernel RPM), I got following notice:
  Package        Arch   Version
                          Repository                                        Size
  kernel         x86_64 4.19.37_sentinel_custom-1
                          /kernel-4.19.37_sentinel_custom-1.x86_64         209 M
  kernel-devel   x86_64 4.19.37_sentinel_custom-1
                          /kernel-devel-4.19.37_sentinel_custom-1.x86_64   817 M
  kernel-headers x86_64 4.19.37_sentinel_custom-1
                          /kernel-headers-4.19.37_sentinel_custom-1.x86_64 4.6 M
      replacing  kernel-headers.x86_64 3.10.0-957.21.3.el7

Transaction Summary
Install  3 Packages

There, the compiled kernel-headers package (4.19.37_sentinel_custom-1) is about to replace stock version
(3.10.0-957.21.3.el7). Is it safe to continue installing from compiled RPM package above, or install kernel manually?
