[CentOS] Understanding modularity

I've read the Fedora modularity docs but am still missing the big picture
somehow. Hope someone can clarify things for me.

What I'm most wondering: does modularity have any influence on the RPM
packages at all. I mean, is there anything inside a RPM package which says
it belongs to a module or it has a special function in a module?

>From what I understand the RPMs are just completely normal packages and
only YUM/DNF knows from some metadata that an RPM belongs to a module. Is
that corrent?

Thanks for any insights,
