They are not treated as unimportant. However, customers have been advised that our support scope of coverage does not include modified RPMs (i.e. recompiling of kernels to enable unsupported features, etc). https://www.redhat.com/support/policy/soc/production/ Feel free to email us directly at secalert@...hat.com if you have more vendor/Red Hat-specific questions.
